Cluster “Montpellier” is composed of three entities, an industrial partner, a clinical research group from the dental faculty and a laboratory of biophysics-biophotonics.
The three organisms started working together on a project concerning the development of an intraoral camera to facilitate the detection of precancerous lesions and cancer of the oral mucosa after staining and / or based on the autofluorescence of the tissues.
The SOPRO-Acteon company is producing the intra-oral camera for caries diagnostic (SOPROLIFE) and clinical endoscopes.
The LBN- EA 4203 laboratory of the dental Faculty of University Montpellier 1 is working in the cluster to validate the clinical use of the SOPROLIFE camera and to develop a similar camera for oral cancer diagnostic.
The Bionanophotonics team of UMR 5221- Laboratoire Charles Coulomb (University Montpellier 2) is in charge of the photonic investigations.
