Biotech firms tend to come on to SPACs’ radar when they still have some clinical work to complete to get to an approved medicine or device, but Avertix is ahead of that particular curve.

This week, we speak with Tim Moran, President and CEO of Avertix, and Ross Haghighat, CEO and CFO of BioPlus Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: BIOS). The two announced a $195 million dollar combination in May of this year.

Tim tells us how Avertix’s Guardian heart monitoring implant has performed in its initial commercial rollout, having already been approved by the FDA and for insurance reimbursements.

Ross meanwhile explains why being at that stage of the process was important for BioPlus’ criteria given the current market conditions and what further value streams could be unlocked by the Guardian device long term.

Give it a listen
