European Investment Bank grants STAT-Dx €20-million loan
STAT-Dx (STAT-Diagnostica & Innovation), a company that specialises in designing and marketing advanced point-of-care diagnostic systems and a CataloniaBio member, has just received a €20-million loan from the European Investment Bank (EIB) under the InnovFin programme. The company will put this capital towards co-funding a three-year project to develop a device to identify a wide range of infectious pathogens that cause diseases like meningitis or gastrointestinal and respiratory infections, among others. The company is based at the Barcelona Science Park.
STAT-Dx recently won the 2017 Biosucces of the Year Award, with Mosaic Biomedicals, which CataloniaBio grants to the best milestones reached each year.
More information is available on the EIB website.
