We are a spin-out from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), a world-renowned institution for academic research in public and global health, turning fundamental scientific discoveries into novel technologies for public health impact.

Our cross-disciplinary team of research scientists, all of whom are trained in GLP and Good Clinical Practice (GCP), have robust experience and expertise in chemical ecology, vector control and entomology. This is underpinned by over 40 years of research by our scientific founders at LSHTM, Professor James Logan and Professor Mary Cameron.

We work closely with clients to cultivate ideas and accelerate product innovation, providing fast and robust test data for both developmental purposes and product registration. In the past ten years, Arctech Innovation has helped to bring more then 300 products to market.

We also have extensive experience in executing large-scale feasibility, behaviour change and intervention studies in disease-endemic countries, working with Ministries of Health, local and national governments, NGOs and industry, to build capacity and sustained social impact.

From proof-of-concept testing to a clinical trial, we drive innovation and evaluation throughout the product development cycle.

Mission & Vision

Our mission is to transform lives by developing products based on bio-inspired technology design and purpose-driven innovation – empowering everyone, every day, everywhere.

World leading scientific discoveries, a rigorous research and development process and a strategic focus on the key challenges of public health are embedded into our DNA.

Our vision consists of two main objectives:

  • to advance scientific discoveries to improve public health across the globe, by developing and commercialising innovative products that not only address market needs but also have strong social impact.
  • to offer industry, government, non-profit and academic institutions a reputable and world class service for the evaluation of public health technologies, including those used for vector control.
