Atonarp Inc. Raises $8M Series A Round Funding
News Aug 12, 2014
Atonarp Inc. announced $8 million in a Series A funding round led by Walden Riverwood Ventures with participation from other co-investors. The funding accelerates the development of Atonarp’s Smart Spectrometer technology platform, which will enable a broad range of applications. The company has targeted the oil & gas and healthcare industries for its initial products.
“We are excited to partner with Atonarp in pursuing the commercialization of its Smart Spectrometer platform. Atonarp has a unique combination of engineering, semiconductor and data analysis talent and fundamental technologies. These are being used by Atonarp to create disruptive, next generation measurement instruments,” said Nicholas Brathwaite, co-founder of Walden Riverwood Ventures and Chairman of Atonarp, Inc.
Atonarp is pioneering the field of chemical composition analysis by combining state-of-the-art electronics and data processing algorithms. Atonarp’s Smart Spectrometer will enable manufacturers of gas-composition analysis instruments, such as field-based gas chromatography equipment, to achieve breakthrough improvements in cost, size, accuracy and maintenance-free operation without the need for expensive carrier gases. The Smart Spectrometer platform is also enabling novel use cases and applications for manufacturers of medical equipment and patient devices, including non-invasive, highly accurate personal healthcare monitoring.
Atonarp is currently sampling its Smart Spectrometer platform to leading manufacturers of oil & gas and healthcare instruments, and will enter volume production early next year.
