Project Description

Novocor Medical Systems helps Emergency Medical Service first responders save lives with its innovative rapid chilling device that helps induce therapeutic hypothermia. Our patented product, HypoCore, is an innovative rapid chilling device that cools saline during the infusion process to induce therapeutic hypothermia. HypoCore is ready on demand, attaches in-line to standard IV tubing and instantly cools saline for up to 30 minutes without any external power. It is easily stored in ambulances, fire trucks, and helicopters and can be carried anywhere EMS personnel go.

The technology behind Novocor Medical Systems was originally developed by students and faculty at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering.

In the Spring of 2013, Novocor Medical Systems was incorporated and has achieved several honors including being an NCSU Fast 15 Company, highlighted at the UNC Emerging Company Showcase, invited to TEDMED’s “The Hive,” and invited as a Blackstone Entrepreneurs Network Company.  In November, 2013, Novocor won the EARLY/Stage Shootout pitch at the Southeast BIO Investor & Partnering Forum in Richmond, Virginia.
