The company intends to utilize funds from this latest financing round to begin to address unmet clinical needs with new generations of diagnostic imaging agents and scanners.
Sofie’s President & CEO, Patrick Phelps, stated: “We are pleased to announce the quick completion of this financing round at a challenging time for private investments in the diagnostics sector. This reiterates the ongoing commitment by our investors and founders.”
Sofie Biosciences looks to increase the adoption and application diversity of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) by removing traditional barriers of cost and complexity. By combining novel PET imaging agents with innovative imaging and radiochemistry systems, Sofie provides researchers and physicians with better tools to investigate the biology of disease.
