Emblation - organised for innovation

Emblation was established on the belief that the future of medical technology will be defined by the significant growth in investment, research, and product development in immune-modulating treatments (IM®) – a unifying concept that has driven our company structure, investment in technology, skills, partnerships, and clinical research.

Introducing IM®: Medical Devices with Immune Activation

In the 1970s, microwave technology was introduced as a new dawn in cancer treatment – a way of successfully treating liver cancer patients with a minimally invasive technique that destroys diseased tissue directly, leaving healthy tissue intact.

Technology innovation has focused on creating larger zones of ablation, at higher temperatures and higher power.

During the same period, vast resources have been allocated to research and development in immunotherapy and as a consequence, the rapid growth of biotech, pharma and genetic research has overshadowed the potential benefits of many technology-driven interventions.

Emblation continues to invest in a programme of research focused on immune modulation (IM®) - subtle, non-ablative treatments that induce, enhance, or suppress immune responses, triggered by microwave activation and heat. While traditional microwave-based medical treatments focus on the destruction of tissue, Emblation has designed and developed products based on the immune activation effects of IM®.
