(FierceBiotech)  Biomodex has raised $15 million in early funding and is aiming to open a new 3D printing facility outside Boston to build patient-specific synthetic organs so surgeons can practice and plan for complex operations. Biomodex’s INVIVOTECH system 3D prints organs based on CT scans or echocardiograms, mimicking an individual’s biomechanics of their organ and the surrounding tissue. The system has primarily been used for neurological procedures, but the company hopes to expand into cardiology interventions.
The series A round adds to the company’s $3.5 million in the bank and was led by the European investment firms Idinvest Partners and InnovAllianz, with participation from previous investors LBO France and Inserm Transfert Initiative.
