Milwaukee-based Novascan Inc. is raising $1 million to $2 million fund continued development of its cancer detection device.

The company, which was founded in 2001 and recently transitioned from an LLC to a C corporation, is raising the funds as an extension of an LLC round for which it has already raised $2.5 million, said Craig Davis, chief executive officer. Novascan plans to raise the remainder of the funds over the next several months.
