AMAROB labelled Deep Tech company

Spin off of FEMTO-ST, Amarob technologie has received the Deep Tech company label awarded by Bpifrance.

Amarob has designed a robotic system that enables intracorporeal laser surgery and focuses in particular on transoral surgery (from the entrance to the mouth to the vocal cords) with an endoscope equipped with a micro-robot that directs a laser during the procedure. This new generation of less invasive instruments allows for less traumatic operations for the patient and better, safer and more efficient outpatient procedures.

Amarob is an example of a successful and fruitful collaboration between researchers and practitioners. It is recognized for its disruptive technology, which was developed in response to an identified and proven clinical need.  Its accreditation places Amarob in the category of French "pepite", as defined by Bpifrance.

Amarob has also just received the FrenchTech Emergence grant for the development of its robot dedicated to intracorporeal laser surgery.
