PHOTONIS Group has acquired four companies (Xenics, Proxivision, Telops and Elmul) since December 2022. The worldwide leader in image intensifier tubes, the company has diversified its technologies and product portfolios to become the worldwide leader in detection and imaging technologies. To illustrate that strategy, PHOTONIS GROUP becomes EXOSENS

Therapy-induced senescent" (TIS) cells in treated tumour cells

A new scientific study published in the prestigious international journal "Science Advances" has investigated one of the still poorly understood aspects of cancer, therapy-induced senescence in tumour cells. The study, the result of collaboration among researchers from Politecnico di Milano (Italy), Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore(USA), the National Cancer Institute in Milan (Italy), and the National Research Council (Italy), expands our understanding of cancer biology and paves the way for future therapeutic advancements.
