UPDATE: Medtech Financings in January Exceed $300 Million

(We originally reported total financings of just under $300 million for January, but after we did a bit more digging we found a couple investments that had managed to fly under the radar.  The total for January 2011 medtech financings now stands at $305 million.)

Financings in January 2011 pushed over $300 million, about on pace for a typical January. 

The top financings are shown below:

  • $33M, PneumRx, Inc., has raised $33 million in a new round of funding (device treatment for emphysema, including lung volume reduction device)
  • $31M, VisionCare Ophthalmic Technologies, Inc., has raised $31 million in a Series E funding (implantable device for treatment of end-stage age-related macular degeneration)
  • $25M, Advanced Cell Technology, Inc., has raised $25 million in new funding (cell therapies)
  • $25M, Avinger, Inc., has raised $25 million in a second round of funding (catheters for peripheral artery disease)
