Micell Technologies continues to raise new funding in a megaround of capital that now has a funding target of a whopping $50 million.

And the company is targeting a host of investors across 42 states plus the District of Columbia.

So far, 51 investors have participated in the round.

In a securities filing, the Durham-based medical technology company has raised its target from $30 million, which was disclosed in a filing last November when it to that point had closed on nearly $26 million.

Micell has now upped its cash haul to almost $42 million.

The investors are getting a mixture of debt and equity.

The funding comes after recent positive news:

  • In May announced “positive twelve-month data from its DESSOLVE III clinical trial” for Mistent.
  • Last November, Micell announced the first patient enrollment for its stent technology in Japan.
  • Last October, Micell reported “positive five-year clinical data” for its Mistent technology.

Micell is owned and operated by Arthur Benvenuto and Daniel Estay. The company has 43 employees, according to its LinkedIn website.

The company launched in 2006. ​

Their product, MiStent, is a CE-marked drug eluting stent that is available in multiple countries across Europe.

MiStent is currently used in the interventional cardiology market, but has the ability to be adaptable to a broad range of drugs and therapeutic agents.
