Haermonics back on track

We are happy to report that Haermonics have secured new funding! Previously, LifeTec Group has developed a prototype sensor for Haermonics to detect blood in a saline solution used to flush the chest after cardiac surgery to prevent post-operative complications. We hope that our sensor concept will soon be used to help patients recover from cardiac surgery.
