invendo medical clôture un financement par capitaux propres de 20 millions d'euros dirigé par Xeraya Capital

-- Ce financement considérable accélérera l'industrialisation et la commercialisation du coloscope à usage unique d'invendo

KISSING, Allemagne et GARDEN CITY, New York, 21 mars 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- invendo medical, fabricant et distributeur du système de coloscopie à usage unique assisté par ordinateur, a annoncé aujourd'hui la clôture d'un tour de financement de 20,3 millions d'euros (28 millions $) dirigé par son nouvel investisseur Xeraya Capital Sdn Bhd (« Xeraya Capital »), qui a investi par le biais d'une société affiliée. Un bureau de gestion du patrimoine allemand s'est également joint comme nouvel investisseur, et les investisseurs existants TVM Capital, Wellington Partner et 360° Capital ainsi que les fondateurs de la société y ont aussi participé. Ce nouvel investissement permettra à invendo de lancer ses efforts l'industrialisation du système invendoscopy™ homologué par la FDA.

invendoscope™ SC20 présente plusieurs caractéristiques inédites dans le domaine de la coloscopie :

  • il s'agit du seul coloscope à usage unique autorisé sur le marché
  • il utilise une technologie de mouvement délicat assistée par ordinateur (« robotique ») et n'a donc pas besoin d'être poussé ni tiré
  • les fonctions endoscopiques sont effectuées au moyen d'un dispositif portatif et
  • il réduit la pression sur les parois du côlon.

Tout comme d'autres endoscopes, l'invendoscope™ permet d'effectuer des interventions intraprocéduraux à l'aide d'un canal opérateur.

« Nous sommes très contents du nouveau financement offert par Xeraya Capital et par nos autres investisseurs. Ce soutien financier arrive à point nommé alors que nous construisons les premiers sites et implantons les premiers usages aux États-Unis. La coloscopie représente déjà un important marché, avec quelque 16 millions d'interventions pratiquées par an rien qu'aux États-Unis, bien que le taux d'observance reste insuffisant. Nous anticipons que l'invendoscope™ jouera un rôle essentiel dans l'adoption du dépistage du cancer colorectal, car il permet d'éliminer certaines des principales craintes des patients qui subissent cet examen. Équipé d'une composante robotique, ce système constitue une première et offre aux patients une alternative assistée par ordinateur qui rend l'examen moins désagréable. Dernier point, mais non le moindre, les dispositifs à usage unique ont fini par s'imposer dans beaucoup de domaines médicaux, et l'invendoscope™ est l'unique système du genre en ce moment », a déclaré Berthold Hackl, PDG d'invendo medical.

« Xeraya Capital exerce des activités de gestion des services de placement relatives au capital-risque et au capital-investissement dans le domaine des sciences de la vie. Sa stratégie consiste à investir dans des fabricants de technologies révolutionnaires, et les technologies médicales figurent parmi les principaux domaines ciblés. invendo medical répond aux exigences d'un important marché en plein essor et propose un produit exclusif susceptible d'augmenter le nombre d'interventions visant à prévenir le cancer colorectal, soit la deuxième cause de mortalité par cancer. Xeraya Capital nous aidera à franchir une nouvelle étape », a rajouté Timo Hercegfi, directeur financier chez invendo.

Les fonds récemment obtenus serviront à la mise en place d'infrastructures de services et de marketing aux États-Unis dans le but d'accroître la capacité de production du dispositif et de soutenir les projets de développement en cours portant, entre autres, sur l'optique et la convivialité de l'appareil.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
"Qosmos has launched L7Viewer, a network traffic analysis tool, so it analyzes all the traffic between the virtual machine and the data center and the virtual machine and the external world," stated Sebastien Synold, Product Line Manager at Qosmos, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...
