Xenex Disinfection Services Finds $38M

San Antonio-based Xenex Disinfection Services said last week that it has raised $38M in a funding round, for its germ zapping robots. The funding was led by Essex Woodlands, and also included Piper Jaffray Merchant Banking, Malin Corporation, and Tectonic Ventures. Xenex said the funds go towards growing its sales force, product development, scientific research and international expansion. Morris Miller is CEO of Xenex. The company's robots use UV light to much more effectively disinfect hospital rooms than humans. More information »
