Microvisk Technologies is pleased to announce that during January 2010, it has raised £2m by attracting new investors and retaining support from its current private and institutional investors.
The development program is now focused on the completion of simple hand held instruments with disposable plastic test strips for the measurement of Prothrombin Time; both in the Doctor’s office and the home testing environments.
The 2007 funding enabled Microvisk to expand into new premises in St Asaph and Chipping Warden, providing the space and resources for future expansion and to assist the further development of the technologies and applications.
The 2006 funding enabled Microvisk to conduct a trial at St Bartholomew's Hospital Group in London with assistance from Professor John Pasi, Professor of Haemostasis and Thrombosis and the results were spectacular in regards of the performance of our prototype when compared to systems already on the market.
Microvisk was formed in 2004 as a spin out from Rutherford Appleton Laboratories with its first patent being filed in December 2003.
