Another hefty funding round for Artio Medical is expected to launch the startup’s commercial sales team in the U.S. and continue development of its best-in-class product pipeline, said founder Nicholas Franano.
Artio, a medical device company developing innovative products for the peripheral vascular, neurovascular, and cardiology markets, on Thursday announced the closing of $28 million in oversubscribed Series A2 and Series A3 financing, bringing the total amount raised to date to $74 million.
Funds will be used to support U.S. commercialization efforts for the recently cleared Solus Gold Embolization Device and to accelerate the development of Artio’s broad portfolio of products, including expanding the company’s engineering and manufacturing capabilities, Franano said in a press release.
