EP Map System, GmbH, a Herdecke, Germany-based company that has developed a suite of technologies focused on electrophysiology (EP) procedures, announced the closing of a $25 million Series A financing round led by Ajax Health. EP Map's product line includes a 3D mapping and navigation system with an integrated signal recording and pacing system, a radiofrequency ablation generator and an irrigation pump.

"We started EP Map in 2014 with the goal of creating a modern, easy-to-use EP system that can be used by hospitals around the world to provide state of the art care to their patients," says Manfred Piechura, founder and CEO of EP Map. "I'm thrilled to partner with Ajax on this next step in the company's life and to bring the Ajax team's expertise into EP Map."
Along with the investment, several Ajax Health executives will join the EP Map management team, including Doug Koo as CFO and Managing Director.
