Cohera Medical, Inc., an early-stage company launched in January, 2006, is developing a novel suite of surgical adhesives for the medical industry. The company received CE mark for its lead product, TissuGlu® Surgical Adhesive, in 2011.
A commitment to improving patient care and quality of life.
Unique opportunity for value creation
Cohera Medical’s adhesive technology platform has the potential to create solutions to clinical challenges faced by surgeons and their patients for which there are few options today. The chemistry underlying the technology formulation is straightforward, proprietary, and offers the ability to create multiple product extensions.
A record of success
A strong and experienced leadership team has guided Cohera Medical through its initial funding rounds, raising over $50M since the company’s launch in 2006, including $2M in non-dilutive grant support through the SBIR program. This financing has allowed TissuGlu Surgical Adhesive to progress through its development stages, culminating in CE Mark approval in 2011.
Ready to scale
Cohera has established relationships with key raw material providers and identified a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) manufacturing facility. Our lead product, TissuGlu Surgical Adhesive, entered the European market after receiving CE mark in 3Q 2011.
