    Season greetings

    The year of 2012 has been exciting and eventful for Calmark. We have managed to CE mark our first product hilda NeoTM, started developing and CE marking a smartphone app and we’ve had several patents granted and participated in numerous studies.

    We want to thank everybody we’ve worked with during 2012 and lock forward to new exciting projects and collaborations in 2013. Instead of thanking everybody with Christmas presents we’ve chosen to contribute to Lilla barnets fond.

    Since we’ve outgrown our offices in Albanova we would also like to announce that we are moving to new facilities in Greenhouse labs at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
