CyanoGuard AG

CyanoGuard AG is a young chemical technology company with an innovative technology that allows for naked-eye detection of toxic substances in water, food extracts and blood samples.

Part of our team met while conducting research in the field of cyanide detection at the University of Zurich. They soon realised the need for simple and safe cyanide tests in the chemical, food and health care industries. The idea grew rapidly to a fully functional test kit.

Our first product, CyanoKit®, allows anyone to test liquid samples using a sensor that changes colour upon the presence of cyanide. Our method is rapid, simple and eliminates the use of hazardous substances. 

Equipped with the latest research, and with over six years of close collaboration with leading industry partners, CyanoGuard is committed to making cyanide visible. Anytime. Anywhere.
