Gecko Biomedical Company Profile

06:10 EDT 23rd June 2018 | BioPortfolio

Gecko Biomedical is a privately owned medical device company based in Paris, France that is dedicated to the rapid development and the commercialization of innovative polymers in the form of sealants and adhesives for surgical wound closure. Gecko Biomedical’s polymers are non-toxic, bind strongly to tissues and deliver ‘on-demand’ wound closure within the ‘wet’ and dynamic environments in the body. The company is expected to start clinical trials for its first product “GB02” in vascular reconstruction, towards the end of 2015. Gecko Biomedical is also working on expanding its versatile polymer platform to various tissues and to other applications, while leveraging the significant regulatory milestones achieved with GB02. The Company’s technologies are based on world-class research and intellectual property from the laboratories of Robert Langer (MIT) and Jeff Karp (Brigham and Women’s Hospital). Gecko Biomedical was founded in 2013 and is backed by leading healthcare investors Omnes Capital, CM-CIC and CapDecisif Management.
