Hemcheck's Newsletter - May 2021

Welcome to the May Newsletter from Hemcheck

Hemcheck has continued on its journey in May. We have continued our efforts to expand our distributor network, setting up and conducting product trials and promoting Hemcheck in the market. We e.g. participated in the digital annual meeting of ISBER, which is an international society for biobanking, and we signed an additional distributor agreement regarding Ireland.
During May we also signed additional employees to complete the team in the clinical and quality areas. These will be very important going forward, both in the daily work but also in regards to product development and ensuring compliance with the new IVDR regulations.

We also held our Annual General Meeting, an important event for all companies each year.
In this newsletter you can read more about our new additions to the team, our interim financial report for Q1, notes from our Annual General Meeting, the digital annual meeting of ISBER and the recently signed distribution agreement with Cruinn Diagnostics, Ireland.

Enjoy the reading!
Joen Averstad, CEO

Participation in the annual, digital exhibition of ISBER - the latest products and services in the industry of biobanks and biorepositories

Hemcheck participated as one of the exhibitors in the annual, digital conference of ISBER 2021. The ISBER society aims at promoting the best practices that cut across the broad range of repositories that ISBER serves and is the only global forum that addresses scientific, technical, legal, and ethical issues for biobanks and biorepositories.

This year ca 400 conference participants and 29 exhibitors visited the digital forum. Key decision makers visited to see the latest products and services in the industry. By participating as exhibitor, Hemcheck could build brand awareness and promote our concepts. The virtual format provided a variety of opportunities to connect with delegates and we had several rewarding and constructive conversations with potential customers. We also gained new interesting contacts at different biobanks globally, which will now be followed-up in separate meetings for further discussions on possible collaborations.

Shortly after the ISBER conference we started a new trial at a European Biobank for evaluation of our concept for biobanking purposes. We have since before FIND as a customer in this area as well.
