Contraline is a biotechnology and medical device company focused on developing innovative products in the field of male contraception. The company’s first product is a polymer gel that is implanted into the vas deferens to block sperm. This contraceptive is long-lasting, non-hormonal, and reversible. Contraline has invented a new medical procedure called Vasintomy for non-surgically inserting and reversing the gel. The novel procedure is quicker, less invasive, and more appealing than a vasectomy, which is currently considered the gold standard in male contraception.

Why did you choose to open a business in the City?
Contraline was incubated at the University of Virginia and when deciding to settle into separate space, proximity to the University where we continue some of research and the local biotech ecosystem was important.
