Gamma Medica closes $18M Series A round | Wall Street Beat Wall Street Beat

Gamma Medica said it’s closed a $16 million Series A round from Psilos Group Managers.

The Northridge, Calif.-based company said it plans to use the cash to expand the commercial footprint of its LumaGen molecular breast imaging device and the LumaGuide biopsy model.

"This funding enables Gamma Medica to provide leading-edge technology designed to aid breast radiologists in diagnosing difficult cases, particularly in women with dense breast tissue, and provides the financial capability to drive market expansion of MBI. We value our relationship with Psilos and are committed in the fight against breast cancer through early diagnosis," president & CEO Jim Calandra said in prepared remarks.

Last week the company revealed $3 million of the round in a regulatory filing.

Gamma Medica earlier this year filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, offloading its molecular breast imaging and preclinical imaging businesses to separate buyers.
