Senorics GmbH, a spin-off from the University of Technology Dresden (TU Dresden) and a startup in the ZEISS Ventures Portfolio has successfully closed a new financing round. Senorics specialises in designing and manufacturing optical spectroscopic sensor solutions for mass market applications. Senorics will use the new funds to accelerate the roll-out of its innovative near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy sensors based on organic semiconductor technology.
In 2019 ZEISS and Senorics entered a technological cooperation to further develop the technology and to identify new application fields which laid the foundation for the current investment by ZEISS Ventures.
The new investment round is led by the FIDURA Private Equity Fonds and all existing investors such as TGFS (Technologiegründerfonds Sachsen) and public funding from the Development Bank of Saxony (Sächsische Aufbaubank).
“With these powerful new partner and investments, we will be able to commercialise our solution in the initial target application fields and further develop our patented optical sensor technology”, said Dr Ronny Timmreck Founder and CEO of Senorics.
