Who we are

Emblation has been leading the world in energy based medical technology since its foundation in 2008.

The brainchild of two pioneering leaders – Gary Beale and Eamon McErlean – our vision is to improve lives by making microwave technology more accessible to clinicians and patients across a range of treatments.

With a combined 45 years of experience in the field, they knew that this technology could make a radical difference to treatments, particularly in the fields of dermatology and oncology.

The challenge was that, at the time, microwave equipment was physically huge and very heavy; devices the size of a chest of drawers had to be wheeled into operating theatres, limiting their use.

The machines needed to be smaller, lighter and cheaper to make them easily portable and their use maximised. So, Gary, Eamonn and their Emblation team set about building them.

Today, from its Scottish headquarters, the company stands at the cutting edge of portable microwave devices with thousands of machines in use around the world and hundreds of thousands of patients successfully treated.

The potential of this energy based medical technology is immense – and the best has yet to come.
