ABEMIS LLC develops novel, motorized microscopy and micro-testing systems for both standard imaging and challenging custom imaging/testing tasks. ABĒMIS was founded in 2015 by Todd Doehring, Ph.D. and William (Bill) Nelson who have developed the lead technology and financial/marketing strategies.

The goal of our company is to produce cutting-edge micro-systems that are flexible, customizable, durable/portable, and affordable (appx. 10x less expensive!) compared to existing systems. A huge market opportunity exists because current systems cost $100-200k (or much more) and are locked into proprietary software/hardware. We strive to enable improved local point-of-care and clinical laboratory health care systems – as well as non-clinical uses such as advanced field microscopy (e.g. archaeology, biology, more…).

Our main product is the ABĒMIS MezoScopeTM system with full X-Y-Z motor control, rapid imaging and gantries/software — all developed (and customizable) in-house. Our software (.NET C#, GPU imaging, OpenCV) is a new milestone in the successful development of the new fast motor-control V.3+ system which is available now and in production for clients such as the Lerner Research Center (Cleveland Clinic Foundation). Demo systems are being built for national distributors. Next steps are development of the new V.4 ‘bullet-proof’ durable/portable system with AI guided software-assisted (deep-learning), live specimen feature-tracking, web interface for tele-medicine applications, and cloud solutions for image database storage/processing — among other novel hardware/software innovations and features.
