GAINESVILLE, Fla., June 03, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AmnioLife Corporation, a human cells, tissues, and cellular and tissue-based products developer, today announced it has raised $833K in a Series A round through an angel investment fund. Fountainhead Investment Partners, a healthcare angel investment fund, led the round and is working closely with AmnioLife to structure strategic partnerships with medical device companies.
AmnioLife is using the proceeds to support its core manufacturing operations at its Gainesville, FL facility. The Company participated in an IRB-approved study in 2014 that allowed it to validate collection methods of human placental tissue and amniotic fluid, and is working toward vertical integration of its supply chain.
Chris Broderick, CEO, said, “This round of funding is allowing us to implement and validate a GxP-compliant enterprise management software to allow for scalable manufacturing and private branding among our other initiatives and to also conduct a series of safety and preclinical studies on our products that we have developed. We are very much looking forward to our strategic partnership with Fountainhead as their fund partners have significant expertise in medical device commercialization and national distribution of human tissue biologics.”
AmnioLife is a research and development organization focused on placental-derived technologies and is building a GxP manufacturing program at its Gainesville, FL facility. The Company aims to commercialize a suite of minimally manipulated tissue products, establish global sales channel partners, and develop a strong IP-position for advanced biologic products.
