Sample6, a food diagnostics firm, has added $2.5 million to its Series B round, after founder and executive board member Tim Lui committed to the round. The company’s Series B now totals $13.5 million.
Sample6, which launched food safety testing products for the resturant trade earlier this year, held a successful first stage of its Series B round last year, closing on $11 million after receiving commitments from Cultivian Sandbox, Flybridge Capital, an incumbent from the company’s Series A round and Canaan Partners, all US venture capital firms.
Canaan, which closed its 10th fund on $675 million last month, also has positions on the Board and Scientific Advisory Board of Sample6.
Sample6 also received $750,000 in debt financing from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Centre in 2012.
