our story

User driven innovation

°MEQU was founded in 2011 by Ulrik Krogh Andersen. On request by the Danish military the Danish Technology University (DTU) was looking for an effective portable blood warmer, and the development process was made in close collaboration with the military and medical experts ensuring that the product would meet the requirements from the military.

In 2018 °MEQU was granted the CE mark and has since then provided customers with modern blood warming.

°MEQU was awarded the red dot design award in 2018. In the evaluation the jury emphasized that the high-tech content does not mean it has to look like an intimidating technical device. The minimalist expression is stylish and signals user-friendliness, and the intuitive design reduces the risk of human errors and delays.

Board of directors

Our board of directors is a team with extensive experience from the medical device and life science industries and are actively involved in the development of °MEQU. In °MEQU we value our board members, who have a strong track-record and in-depth insight into our industry, customer segments as well as experience in building global companies – bringing us from a more R&D focused company to a successful international sales company. Some of our board members are also some of our investors who support our journey.
