Eccrine Systems, Inc., a Cincinnati, OH-based developer of non-invasive, wearable, sweat sensors, raised $5.5m in Series A funding.
Backers included CincyTech Fund IV and other sources within the CincyTech local, regional and national investor community.
The company, which has recently been awarded a $3.96m contract by the United States Air Force Research Laboratory, intends to use the funds to continue to develop its swet sensors.
Led by Robert Beech, CEO and co-founder, Eccrine Systems is developing advanced, wearable, sweat sensing systems based on innovative research and intellectual property that originated from the University of Cincinnati and the Air Force Research Labs at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
The company’s technology platform addresses a spectrum of monitoring applications including industrial toxicity, fitness-for-duty, stress management, treatment effectiveness and various medical conditions.
Since raising a $1.5M seed round in early 2015, Eccrine Systems, which is based in the HCDC Business Center, has grown its staff to over twenty team members.
