CyanoGuard is a fast-growing spin-off from the University of Zurich, which has developed an innovative technology to detect toxic substances in food, water and other samples.
The team met conducting research in the field of cyanide detection and soon realized the need for an easy and safe to use cyanide test that can be applied in different fields, specifically in the chemical, food and healthcare industries. The idea has grown rapidly in the past few years to a fully functional test kit, which is ready for use in pilot projects.
The ultimate goal is to improve food and water safety control, environmental mentoring and emergency healthcare globally and subsequently reduce the risk of poisoning for people exposed to this toxin.
