The federal government is contributing $1,746,850 through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency to help four Halifax-based life sciences companies commercialize their healthcare solutions.

The four Halifax-based companies are part of a cluster of more than 100 locally-owned life sciences businesses:

  • Mortyx protects and monitors blood samples moving between hospitals and laboratories
  • Nxtgen Care provides care to seniors
  • IR Scientific provides a solution for tooth sensitivity

“Strong regional economies are essential to grow a successful and sustainable Canadian economy,” said Melanie Joly, minister of Economic Development and Official Languages, in a prepared statement.“The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency is there to help businesses and innovators grow, succeed and create good jobs for Atlantic Canadians. Our government is making strategic investments that will enable businesses in all regions of the country gain a competitive edge.”
