BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 6, 2013) - Elsevier Business Intelligence, the medtech industry's leading provider of strategic partnership and investment conferences, announced today that it will host the 'IN3 Medical Device 360° Boston' investor conference on June 24-26, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency Boston. There are many emerging companies that are presenting at an IN3 event for the first time, including ExThera Medical.

ExThera Medical (Berkeley, Calif.), with its origins at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, has developed and will soon launch clinical trials for an innovative medical device that captures and removes an extremely broad range of bacteria, viruses, parasites and disease-causing agents from circulating human blood -- directly, quickly and simultaneously. At the same time it removes pathogens, ExThera's Seraph® Microbind® Affinity Blood Filter ("Seraph") is also engineered to reduce circulating levels of bacterial toxins and pro-inflammatory cytokines that play an important role in the progression of bloodstream infection to a full systemic inflammatory response. "We know of no other therapy capable of sweeping all of these agents from the blood of bacteremic and viremic patients in a brief course of treatment," said Dr. Robert Ward, CEO, ExThera Medical. "We are very much looking forward to showcasing our technology at In3 Boston because of the sophisticated investors that are drawn to IN3 events."

The Investment in Innovation (IN3) Medical Device 360° Boston conference will feature presentations by more than 35 early-, mid- and late-stage start-up companies that are seeking funding and/or strategic partnership across the spectrum of diagnostic and therapeutic device markets. The conference also will feature an outstanding agenda of panels, networking sessions and meet-and-greets with industry thought leaders discussing the most pressing issues facing the global device industry in 2013 and beyond. Panel topics will include: What Acquirers Want to See in a Start-Up Before Buying; Alternative Financing Strategies for Capital: When and Where to Find Them; and, Medtech Investing: Hear What It Takes to Get a VC to Say 'Yes!' In addition, large company/VC meet-and-greets will be held to facilitate interaction between these two influential groups and conference participants. Partnering software will be available to all registered attendees prior to the conference so that one-on-one onsite meetings can be pre-arranged. 

In addition to all of the customary conference benefits, presenting company CEOs will have the opportunity to be interviewed on camera, at no charge, for a 3-minute exclusive video in which they may discuss their company and technology. These interviews will be featured post-conference at www.in3tv.com, to which a link will be provided to participating companies for their unrestricted use; availability of these video interviews will be broadly promulgated within the medtech industry. All one-on-one interviews with presenting-company CEOs will take place at, and during the IN3 Boston conference and be organized by medtech PR/IR expert Ronald Trahan, President of Ronald Trahan Associates, Inc. Videotaping will take place on a scheduled basis only, on one day only of the event: Tuesday, June 25, from 1:00-5:30 p.m. EDT. To schedule the free on-camera interviews contact rctrahan@ronaldtrahan.com, or call +1-508-359-4005, x108.

This special event will benefit a wide variety of participants in the medical device sector: start-ups seeking investment or strategic partnerships, investment firms, VCs, mid-size and large medical device manufacturers, and service providers. Emerging medtech companies that would like to apply to present in Boston should contact Kayleen Kell at 949-797-7142, or email k.kell@elsevier.com
