Deals Update

A roundup of recent medtech strategic alliances, mergers & acquisitions and financings.

Medical Device

NovaScan LLC

Its FastPath residual cancer probe is designed to identify normal, benign and malignant tissue types remaining inside the surgical cavity and in excised tissue in real time during surgery.

Medical Device
