The medtech company behind a new blood filtration device has secured seven-figure funding.

London-based MediSieve Ltd secured the £1.75m boost from a mix of new and existing investors.

Private capital network 24Haymarket led the round by contributing £632k, with director Marek Gumienny joining the MediSieve board as non-executive director.

MediSieve said the investment will "contribute greatly" to further research and development while providing a strong source of future capital.

The company currently operates from office and lab space at Imperial College London’s Translation & Innovation Hub (I-HUB).

MediSieve is best known for its magnetic blood filtration technology, which targets blood-borne diseases by magnetically filtering specific disease-causing components in the bloodstream.
