Funding rounds

The Imspex Group has employed €6.5Mn to date to develop the detection and medical diagnostic applications of our technology through a combination of external fundraising, grants and revenues generated elsewhere in the business. A further €8.5Mn was invested in fundamental research prior to that.

A further round of Series A fundraising is now underway to finalise processes to obtain regulatory approvals, finish biomarker validation studies and set commercial arrangements in place to take the technology to market.

  • Discussions with strategic investors:
    • Accelerating delivery of a Covid-19 platform as a first point of market entry
