RaySearch was founded in 2000 as a spin-off from Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden. The founders are still major shareholders in the company. In just over ten years, the company has established a leading position in the field and 15 products have been launched in the market in collaboration with partners. In addition, the new proprietary RayStation treatment planning system was launched in 2010.
RaySearch's business model entails two routes to the market and the products are sold both via partners and directly to cancer centers.
In the partnership model, RaySearch's treatment planning solutions are sold through other leading med tech companies. The products are then included as integrated modules in the partners' systems.
RaySearch also markets a complete proprietary treatment planning system - RayStation. The system contains all of RaySearch's advanced treatment planning solutions integrated into a flexible system. RayStation is sold directly to end customers by RaySearch's own sales organization.
The product development and the research teams are based at the head office in Stockholm, Sweden, together with senior management and the central sales and service organization.

RaySearch also has local sales and service offices in USA, France, UK and Belgium, and a network of distributors in Italy, Spain, South Korea and China. RaySearch is currently expanding the organization for sales and marketing of RayStation on the most important cancer radiation therapy markets.
