The society is a start-up company incorporated in 2006, after winning the second prize at Start-Cup Piemonte regional business plan competition. After three years of R&D in the fields of Life Sciences and Solar Energy, in 2009 Cyanine Technologies became part of Pianeta Group.
Today Cyanine Technologies is ready to be your best chemical partner with a complete catalogue of innovative proprietary reagents and nanotools. Cyanine Technologies is settled at the University of Torino Innovative Companies Incubator.
The team is composed of chemists, biologists and biotechnologists. Company activities range from basic research on Cyanine Dyes and luminescent metal complexes to product synthesis scale up, as well as product development for specific Life Sciences and Solar Energy applications. The company is also strongly focused on the design and development of nanomaterials for hi-tech applications.
Through the collaboration with academic research centres, pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies, we also developed nanobiotech tools, such as bio-functionalised porous fluorescent nanoparticles, for simultaneous imaging and drug delivery.
Research conducted by the company led also to the development of new dyes for dye sensitised solar cells (DSSC) which will have large diffusion in the next few years as low cost renewable sources energy production devices.
