Nasdaq Stockholm Welcomes Hemcheck Sweden to First North


Stockholm, March 15, 2017 — Nasdaq (Nasdaq: NDAQ) announces that the trading in Hemcheck Sweden AB’s shares (short name: HEMC) commenced today on Nasdaq First North in Stockholm. Hemcheck Sweden belongs to the health care sector and is the 8th company to be admitted to trading on Nasdaq’s Nordic markets* in 2017.

Hemcheck Sweden is a medical technology company addressing the issue of hemolysis – the most common reason for blood samples to be deemed unfit for laboratory analysis.

Hemcheck Sweden was founded in 2010 and is headquartered in Karlstad, Sweden. For more information, please visit

As previously announced, we will now finalize our product concept, consisting of HELGE™ and READY™, for CE marking. We can then go full speed ahead with the market launch of our concept, starting in Sweden.”
