Camera tech firm Living Optics snaps up Milton Park HQ

Living Optics – a University of Oxford spinout developing hyperspectral cameras which capture information undetectable to the human eye – has established its new headquarters at Milton Park, Oxfordshire.

The new headquarters will see its team of 30 employees occupy 8,000 sq ft of cutting-edge office and R&D lab space at 100 Park Drive, enabling Living Optics to facilitate its future recruitment and expansion plans.

A spinout from the University of Oxford’s Physics Department in 2020, the company secured £20m of series A funding in 2022, which will be put towards developing the complex engineering and software applications required for the camera technology at the new premises.

Our successful series A funding underpinned a real excitement about our mission to democratise hyperspectral cameras for the mass market, but it also revealed a critical need for us to find more space and facilities to accommodate for that rapid growth. Milton Park’s location, its adaptable facilities and the vibrancy of its occupier community was a natural fit for Living Optics. Our new headquarters – complete with laboratory, meeting room and collaboration spaces – suit our future needs perfectly. We’re well on our way to introducing hyperspectral systems and the huge range of potential applications to the market, which have long been confined to the lab, and we’re really excited to continue that journey here at Milton Park.

Connor O’Brien, Finance Director at Living Optics
