Our story.

Founded in 2011 with a mission to make high-end microscopy technology accessible, we quickly achieved the necessary expertise to build top-tier systems that are indispensable for ground-breaking biological research. In November 2021 Apposite Capital, a specialist international healthcare and life science investor, acquired a majority shareholding in CrestOptics to partner with the management team and employees to accelerate market penetration globally and launch new products. Our products are supported globally by an experienced network of distributors of our branded products and integrated into prestigious and highly complex equipment, through OEM custom design or as a component.
