Refined Laser Systems

Refined is a dynamic biophotonics company from Münster, Germany. Its pioneering laser systems PICUS DUO and PICUS Q are used worldwide as key enabler for SRS-microscopy and quantum technology. Refined has stepped up to combine its lasers with modern microscopes and AI to transform the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. In today’s cancer treatments, surgeries must be repeated in up to one third of all cases because it remains a challenge to quickly identify cancer cells without extensive biopsy processing. Refined has stepped up to empower surgeons and pathologists to meet this challenge. Its technology allows clear insights into tissue and cell systems within just a few minutes and will allow to reduce stress for patients and costs of cancer therapy.


Refined Laser Systems is a spin-off from the University of Münster and was founded in 2019. Located in the technology park in Münster we are embedded into a rich biotech and research environment.
