COLUMBIA, Md.--()--Feb. 21, 2006--Heartscape Technologies, Inc., a cardiology device company focused on the early and accurate diagnosis of heart attacks and ischemia, announced that it has raised $3 million in Series A financing. Radius Ventures led the round and was joined by Delta Partners and company management. In connection with the financing, Heartscape acquired the assets pertaining to PRIME ECG(R) technology from Meridian Medical Technologies, Inc.

"Securing this round of financing from top medical device investors is a testament to our technology, business model, and outstanding team," said Carl Rebert, who is President and a founder of Heartscape. "These funds have been earmarked primarily for sales and marketing and the commencement of a series of clinical trials aimed at further establishing the clinical utility of the PRIME ECG system."

"Heartscape's patented technology is a platform to address some of the most pressing needs in the management of chest pain patients, an area of critical importance to physicians, hospitals and patients," said Jordan Davis, Managing Partner of Radius Ventures and Chairman of Heartscape. "In the management of heart attack victims, time is muscle and rapid diagnosis can be the difference between life and death and clearly impacts a patient's long-term prognosis."

"The PRIME ECG system has the potential to become the standard of care in the evaluation of chest pain patients in the emergency room setting," said Joey Mason of Delta Partners. "We have closely followed the development of this important technology from its beginnings at the University of Ulster in Northern Ireland and are excited by the growing body of clinical evidence demonstrating the potential of PRIME ECG technology in the early diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction."
