Uptake Medical Secures $3M

Uptake Medical, the Seattle-based company developing minimally invasive technology to treat emphysema, has raised $3.1 million in a debt financing, according to a regulatory filing. Uptake is developing a device that’s supposed to seal off access to diseased parts of the lung where air gets trapped, without leaving any implantable device behind. It is competing with Redmond, WA-based Spiration, among others. The latest round is in addition to the $3 million bridge financing the company raised for its clinical trials in December.
