Viroblock closes Series C financing round

Plan-les-Ouates, Switzerland (ots)

Viroblock S.A., a company with a highly innovative, broadly applicable anti-viral air filtration technology, initially focused on development and commercialization of anti-viral face-masks, today announced the successful closure of a 3.3 million CHF Series C financing round.

Dr Jamie Paterson, CEO of Viroblock, said "these funds allow Viroblock to complete the development of our anti-viral face-mask and start its commercialization in 2012." Unlike other face-masks, the Viroblock mask can kill enveloped viruses, such as H1N1, H5N1 and SARS, on pass through air.

The financing round was led by Dr Peter Pfister and Dr Erich Platzer from the StartAngels Network, with strong support from new and existing investors. Dr Platzer noted that "pathogenic respiratory viruses are an increasing concern both for professional health workers and the general public. We are therefore excited to invest in Viroblock's unique solution to this everyday problem."
