NEW YORK, Nov. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harris & Harris Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:TINY), an investor in transformative companies enabled by disruptive science, and EchoPixel, Inc., a developer of next-generation medical imaging solutions and a Fogarty Institute for Innovation company, announce the completion of EchoPixel's $2.35 million Series Seed financing to drive the company's growth in data visualization, machine learning and big data. Harris & Harris Group co-led the round of financing with Aurus Ventures of Chile.

"The True 3D technology of EchoPixel provides holographic virtual body parts from a patient's CT or MRI that enable health care professionals to overcome the weakness of present offerings based on 2D technology in diagnostics, surgical planning and image guided treatment," said Ron Schilling, CEO of EchoPixel. "Working with luminary centers to develop new protocols, based on True 3D, has demonstrated significant improvement in both clinical efficacy and workflow," according to Sergio Aguirre, founder and CTO of EchoPixel.

EchoPixel's proprietary software enabled the company to establish relationships with an impressive list of luminary centers such as UCSF, Stanford, and the Cleveland Clinic.  "In discussions with several of the doctors, it became clear that many of the pain points that they are experiencing in their work may be overcome with True 3D-related technology," noted Alexei Andreev, Managing Director of Harris & Harris Group.

"Watching Sergio work side by side with the doctors to establish a clinical/technical tie convinced me that EchoPixel was creating the future," said Alex Seelenberger, Managing Partner at Aurus Ventures.

"EchoPixel is another example of Harris & Harris Group's BIOLOGY+ investment focus," said Douglas Jamison, CEO of Harris & Harris Group. "In the case of EchoPixel, biology is intersecting with computer science, mathematics and physics to enhance the clinical utility of medical imaging through advances in data visualization and machine learning."
