MADISON, Wis., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Nerites Corporation, a company that develops novel tissue repair products and coatings for medical devices, today announced it has completed a $5.7 million Series A round of funding.

As we've gotten to know the technology and team, we've been impressed with the company's progress in developing prototype products for specific applications.
