TheraFuse, Inc., is an emerging technology company that designs and develops infusion systems for delivering pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical liquids. Since 2001, TheraFuse has created products that measure various fluid flow rates during therapeutic drug infusion (e.g., very low insulin infusion rates for newborns to very high infusion rates needed for clinical intravenous drug delivery).
