Boston Sci leads $10M round for Securus Medical

Securus Medical, which is developing a real-time thermal mapping system to measure core body temperature, raised $10 million in a Series C round led by Boston Scientific. The funding will go toward further product development and clinical investigation of its device.

The device, the infrared thermographic system (IRTS), recently received FDA clearance, the company said in a statement. It is an intrabody thermal measurement device intended for the continuous monitoring of esophageal temperature.

In addition to Boston Scientific, existing investors RiverVest Venture Partners, 3X5 Special Opportunity Fund and the University of Michigan’s Investment in New Technology Startups (MINTS) program also participated in the round.
