PhotoniCare is a medical device company fundamentally changing the way physicians manage middle ear infections. With the ClearView device, physicians can now see through the eardrum to directly and harmlessly visualize the middle ear. Their technology enables physicians to determine quickly and easily whether a patient needs antibiotics or surgical intervention. They have third-generation prototypes in multi-site clinical studies, as well as several patents and publications on the technology. Over the last year, they have raised ~$2.3M in non-dilutive federal grants, and are now preparing for FDA submission and the launch of their first product. Learn more at
