PhotoniCare, Inc. (www.photoni.care) is a medical device manufacturer located in Champaign, IL and Durham, NC.

As a result, we’ve developed a low-cost handheld imaging platform that uses light to see through tissue. Our first product on this platform is empowering front-line providers to make better decisions about middle ear infections, the leading cause of hearing loss, antibiotic use, and surgeries in children. PhotoniCare has developed the OtoSight Middle Ear Scope™, a handheld imager designed to look and handle like the familiar otoscope.
