Tel Aviv, March 2019 – Leading European corporate finance boutique Clipperton is proud to announce it acted as sole financial advisor to Ibex Medical Analytics – the Israeli developer of AI-based cancer diagnosis systems – for its $11 million Series-A round. The investment will support further product development and enable Ibex to accelerate its international deployment.
Combining a unique dataset of millions of pathology slides and electronic medical records with state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence technologies, Ibex developed breakthrough algorithms to confirm cancer diagnoses of tissue biopsies. The company’s initial product, a Second Read system for prostate cancer diagnosis, has already been clinically deployed at Maccabi Healthcare Services and will soon be commercially deployed internationally in pathology labs, establishing the company as a first-mover in the emerging computational pathology space.
Thanks to this new funding, Ibex will be able to expand its engineering team and extend its product offering to additional types of cancers while pushing forward its commercial development, getting the edge on its competitors.
“Many cancer cases are diagnosed too late or are missed due to human error. We have already witnessed the life-saving impact that our platform has delivered to Maccabi patients”, said Joseph Mossel, Ibex’s co-founder and CEO. “With this new funding, we plan to expand our engineering team in order to extend our product offering to additional types of cancer. This will empower pathology institutes to significantly improve their efficiency and accuracy, thereby saving the lives of more patients.”
Roy Wisner, Managing Director at aMoon is delighted to support a first-rate groundbreaking company: “Together with our fellow investors, we believe the exceptional team, validated technology, unique access to large datasets and the strong international collaborations the company has built, position IBEX as an early leader in the field.”
