TOWSON, MD and JERUSALEM, ISRAEL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/16/14 -- LeukoDx Inc., the creator of the Accellix automated flow cytometry platform, today announced that it has secured $7 million in new financing from Axcel Partners, a US-based private equity group, and individual investors.
"We are grateful for this strong vote-of-confidence from both existing and new investors," commented Mr. Julien Meissonnier, LeukoDx's President and CEO. "Having secured this major cash infusion, we will now accelerate our plans to bring the Accellix platform and rapid sepsis test to market."
In parallel, the Company has appointed Mr. Mark Chess, a Managing Director for Infinity Equity, and Mr. Seymour Liebman, a senior executive officer of Canon Inc., to serve as members of the LeukoDx Board of Directors.
"I am excited to help bring LeukoDx's exceptional technology -- a solution for getting doctors life-and-death test results in minutes rather than days -- to a health industry that remains stuck on so many diagnostic fronts," commented Mr. Liebman. "I am confident that LeukoDx's solutions will help raise the standards bar for healthcare throughout the world."
"I am pleased to join the LeukoDx Board of Directors, a start-up whose visionary founders and seasoned management have already made impressive progress," stated Mr. Chess. "I look forward to helping the team go the distance, bringing its needed technologies to large and rapidly-growing markets."
Walter Drimer, Chairman of LeukoDx, added, "We are honored that both Mark Chess and Seymour Liebman have agreed to join our Board. Their outstanding international achievements and experience will be extremely valuable to us as we proceed with the launch of the Accellix platform and our first application, the Accellix Rapid Sepsis test."
