About Us

ANANAS Nanotech was founded in 2007 as a spin-off of the University of Padua after a group of researchers discovered the ANANAS nanoparticles, an innovative nanoassembly system of colloidal poly-avidin, that allow a high sensitive detection for in vitro diagnostics in different applicative sectors: Biomedical, Veterinary and food monitoring. ANANAS Nanotech won numerous awards dedicated to innovative start-ups, including the National Prize for Innovation and Nanochallenge.

ANANAS  Nanotech’s constant devotion to innovation led to several collaborations with many prestigious institutions such as:

- Istituto di Patologia Clinica dell’Università di Padova
- Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale Emilia Romagna
- Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale Lombardia
- Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri
- University of Tel Aviv
