Our Investment in Admetsys

The Zell Early-Stage Fund invested $150,000 in Admetsys, a medical device company that has developed an artificial pancreas to help monitor insulin levels for hospital and surgical care. Admetsys helps minimize hospital complications, reduce ICU stay time, and save lives from quick glycemic measurements and calculated insulin administration.

Admetsys recently received FDA Breakthrough Designation for its automated glucose control and continuous blood diagnostics system.
