BETA Startup Showcase: Thaddeus Medical

by Valerie Lockhart

BETA Startup: Thaddeus Medical LogoThe TECHdotMN team would like to introduce you to each of the startups featured in the upcoming BETA showcase. Over the next couple of weeks, we will highlight each company, so you can get a better idea of the talent, hardwork, and dedication held within each of these startups.

The next company in our BETA Startup Showcase series is: Thaddeus Medical

Protecting temperature sensitive medical products in transit through smart, reusable packaging.

Tell us the story of how and why you started your company.
I learned about the serious harm to patients that can occur through the improperly controlling and tracking temperature of clinical specimens while I was a Research Associate at Mayo Clinic. As Mayo has outstanding protocols to protect patients, they reject / refuse to test specimens if they are not received at the appropriate temperature. As medical errors are the 3rd biggest killer in the US, it is not unreasonable to think that this is sometimes overlooked at other hospitals especially outside the United States. If there was a better way to control and track temperature for individual clinical specimens, there would be a lot less risk to harming the patient. The same is true for therapeutics, with all the biological therapies that are being sent to patients homes, a solution is needed to protect the therapeutics and provide a better experience to the patient.

What’s your most recent success or milestone hit?
We have DEMO units!!! Fill out the form on our website if your Hospital or Pharmacy would like to try it: Thaddeus Med

Where do you see your startup in 1 year?
Hopefully no longer a startup, but 3rd party tested and approved moving also into the transportation and storage of transplanted organs.
