HEATSENS is a revolutionary ultra-sensitive nanobiosensing technology owned by NANOIMMUNOTECH, a leader company in Nanobiotechnology applied to Biosensors.
AN INNOVATIVE COMPANY HAS BORN: NANOIMMUNOTECH
NANOIMMUNOTECH was founded in 2009, as a spin-off company from two research centres with cutting-edge expertise in different areas of nanobiotechnology (Instituto de Nanociencia de Aragón [Nanoscience Institute of Aragón] and Centro de Investigaciones Biomédicas de Vigo [Biomedical Research Centre of Vigo]) for one clear reason: problems existed in the market that the expertise of research groups at these centres could solve. That is why the company was set up for the purpose of bringing the excellence in science it possesses to the market, maintaining a stellar research team and incorporating professionals in the fields of economics, marketing, sales and operations. The NANOIMMUNOTECH team is currently made up of 12 people (over half of them are women). In its early years of operation, NANOIMMUNOTECH made a major investment in R&D, which began to monetise in 2012, with the first sales of the company’s products and services.

IT'S DRIVER: INNOVATION
Whilst being aware that innovation is its driver for growth, NANOIMMUNOTECH’s strategy is to maintain the art of continuously listening to the market, picking up on their unmet needs and applying their knowledge to meet these needs (with researcher’s instinct), as a basis for company growth (with business instinct).
HEATSENS HAS BORN
Thus, in 2013, NANOIMMUNOTECH detected keen interest in the market in terms of biosensors and an unresolved problem in various sectors: Detection or measurement solutions were in demand that yield faster, more sensitive results than the existing ones with easy-to-use devices that enable detection in the measuring point (in practice, they are “portable”). Being aware of this real need of the industry, NANOIMMUNOTECH strategically decided to get an innovative technology that would allow achieving better solutions for the detection of analytes. That is in this context of continuous concern that has NANOIMMUNOTECH to respond to market needs, that HEATSENS has born, an ultra-sensitive nanobiosensing technology that will revolutionize the way to detect analytes for a large range of sectors, offered under the brand NITBIOSENSING !
In other words: NANOIMMUNOTECH has the solution to respond to the unsatisfied demand in terms of analytes detection.
HEATSENS, THE BEGINNING OF SUCCESSFUL COLLABORATIONS
HEATSENS technology development goes ahead and several projects with companies and institutions are performed, responding to their demand for the detection of specific analytes of interest. The versatility of HEATSENS technology allows NANOIMMUNOTECH to collaborate with entities from different sectors such as agrifood, environmental industry, etc. HEATSENS begins to be considered by such industries as a revolutionary solution for ultra-sensitive detection of a large range of analytes.
HEATSENS granted by the European Commission
The European Commission grants NANOIMMUNOTECH with the SME Instrument (HORIZON 2020 Program) for its innovative HEATSENS nanobiosensing technology that enables fast, simple and ultra-sensitive detection of Salmonella in the food sector. Learn more >>
