Happy Earth Day!

As we celebrate today, the team at Artyc is reflecting on the fundamental reason behind our mission - a dedication to environmental sustainability that is deeply embedded in every aspect of our product development—from eliminating harmful refrigerants to enhancing energy efficiency.

As 2024 unfolds, our team has hit the ground running. Our commercial and operations teams have started the year strong, collaborating closely with customers across various sectors to refine their direct-to-patient shipping solutions. Working in partnership with CROs, medical logistics companies, and decentralized care providers, we are broadening the scope of patients who can access at-home treatments. By making it easier to incorporate active cooling into existing workflows and study designs, we are setting new standards in patient care. Simultaneously, we have been enhancing our track and trace capabilities, providing unmatched peace of mind to our customers.

This quarter has been busy with travel, and we are immensely thankful for the opportunities to connect with colleagues at the SCOPE conference. We eagerly anticipate meeting many more of you at upcoming events and continuing our discussions on how to drive forward our shared goals.

Warm regards,

Hannah Sieber, Cofounder and CEO

Behind the Scenes
Learn More about the Medstow Micro

From direct-to-patient shipments to complex clinical trials, the Medstow Micro ensures your products stay protected under precise conditions, no matter the journey.

Understanding Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

Our latest white paper presents a comprehensive analysis of the Medstow Micro versus traditional single-use shippers. We explore a detailed scenario involving a diagnostic laboratory to highlight the financial and operational advantages of switching to reusable shippers. The findings show significant reductions in total cost of ownership and improved shipment experiences for all stakeholders involved — particularly for patient-centric services.

Introducing Artyc Unboxed

Dive into the stories behind the people and passion driving Artyc in our new series, “Artyc Unboxed.” This look behind the scenes begins with how co-founders Hannah and Mark crossed paths and combined their expertise to tackle global cold chain challenges. Hannah, leveraging her insights on environmental sustainability from Stanford, and Mark, transitioning from NASA to harness technology in combating climate change, found common ground. Their encounter in a climate meet-up sparked a partnership fueled by a shared belief in the transformative power of technology.

Greener Transit Success

In a recent case study, Maersk and one of its biopharma clients achieved a reduction of 4,578 metric tons of CO2 equivalent by adopting transit methods with lower energy intensity. At Artyc, reducing the carbon intensity of transit is a key goal, so we are stoked to see the focus on monitoring and measuring CO2 levels.
