Oklahoma innovation can produce great — and important — productsPublished: Tuesday, December 5, 2017 By: Scott Meacham Source: NewsOK
This week I heard an inspiring story from Saravan Kumar, Ph.D., CEO of MaxQ Research, a portfolio company that received an i2E-led investment in July.
MaxQ provides packaging systems that are specifically designed to hold and transfer lifesaving and temperature-sensitive biologics, including blood and vaccines. The proprietary technology is based on advanced breakthroughs in thermal insulation sciences.
Before the round, MaxQ had already bootstrapped research and early growth. Kumar and his Oklahoma State University graduate co-founders, Shoaib Shaikh, and Balaji Jayakumar, Ph.D., COO had signed up about two dozen hospitals and three blood banks.
Post-funding, MaxQ continues to hit milestones.
