Healionics leaves the nest

Last March, Healionics’ initial round of funding made it the first company to spinoff from the Ratner Biomedical Group, a local incubator. Now the company finally has its own pad.

On Thursday, Healionics, which specializes in producing bio-compatible materials for medical devices and implants, said it had acquired a research lab and new offices in Redmond. Its flagship technology — known as STAR Material — reduces the human body’s rejection to medical implants, a news release said.

The new digs will enable Healionics to manufacture the material in quantity; the company is currently negotiating several partnership deals, the company says.

The deals will be announced soon, according to the release.
