Robotics company raises $20M for compact surgical robotic program — 3 insights

Virtual Incision Corp. closed a $20 million series B financing round supporting commercialization efforts for its MIRA Surgical Robotic Platform.

1. The robotics platform is designed for hospitals and surgery centers. The platform is smaller than a traditional platform and doesn't require the same infrastructure "mainframe" robotic systems do. For example, the company's single-incision platform weighs 2 pounds and can be easily moved.

2. The system's unspecified price point is "significantly lower" than other commercially available systems, according to a release.

3. Returning investor Bluestem Capital led the round, with support from PrairieGold Venture Partners, Genesis Innovation Group and other investors.
