Hey there 👋

As Artyc evolves, we believe in keeping you, our valued community, connected and informed. That’s why we’re thrilled to launch “Cool Currents”, your go-to for everything happening at Artyc and insights from the broader cold-chain landscape.

This past quarter has been one of innovation and partnership. With the unveiling of our first product, the Medstow Micro, and the addition of new talent, our drive and passion for building a sustainable cold-chain continues to grow.

In this first edition of “Cool Currents”, I’m eager to present a snapshot of our progress and look forward to many more shared moments in the future.

Let’s dive in!

Behind the Scenes
A Product Launch to Remember

In partnership with Tasso Inc., we’re proud to present the Medstow Micro - the first product in our thermal packaging collection. Leveraging our proprietary active cooling technology, the Medstow Micro is not just about at-home blood sample collection; it’s about redefining refrigerated, chilled, and ambient parcel shipments for decentralized care. Experience precision in temperature control, live location and temperature monitoring, all wrapped in a qualified package. Interested in the specifics? Explore the full story in our press release.

Strengthening Our Team

With the addition of some brilliant minds to our engineering teams, we’re accelerating our path to groundbreaking solutions. As we elevate our firmware capabilities and expand our software platform, be ready for a rollout of new, cutting-edge features soon!

Grants Collaborations

After securing additional grant funding from Caltech, we’re laying the groundwork for a refrigerant-free future. But this is just the beginning. If you have connections in corporate, academia, or manufacturing operations, we’re eager to collaborate on future grant applications. We’re embarking on a detailed Life Cycle Assessment as well.

Relationship-building, strategic collaborations, and understanding funder motives were other key lessons. Check out our LinkedIn insights.

Temperature Control and Logistics NA Summit: We gathered with folks from across the country to understand the biggest hurdles across commercial Pharma. Quality compliance reigns supreme, followed by the industry’s friction points: data integration and last-mile drug delivery. The consensus? Active cooling is here to stay, but there's work to be done.
