This financial injection will be used for the commercialization of Pepric’s ex-vivo molecular analysis tool and the development of the following generation of in-vivo imagers.

Pepric (pepric.com) develops and commercializes equipment for quantitative detection of magnetically labeled cells, drugs and biomolecules. Quantification is often difficult for slow biological processes such as cell migration. Pepric’s sensitive tools will allow pre-clinical centres to evaluate the efficacy of new therapies, to perform an early diagnosis and to determine the biodistribution and pharmacokinetics of newly developed magnetic contrast agents.

The investment will support the production and commercialization of Pepric’s first product, the ex-vivo analysis tool for quantitative molecular and cellular detection. Furthermore it will enable Pepric to develop its core technology towards in-vivo detection and imaging. For this purpose the team will be reinforced with three additional employees.

With this financing round the Flemish investment company PMV also partakes in the Pepric story. That happens with means from the SOFI-Fund which has been created to support spin-offs from the four Flemish Strategic Research Centres (IBBT, imec, VIB en VITO). The initiative has been launched by the Flemish minister for Innovation, Mrs. Ingrid Lieten, and is managed by PMV. Also FIDIMEC, the spin-off investment vehicle of imec, participated in this round.
