Why us?

NanoSanitas™ leads the way

Our story

NanoSanitas™ is a brand of para-pharmaceutical pet-grooming products, launched by PLiN Nanotechnology S.A., a technology driven spin-off of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki specializing in the production of nanomaterials. Following the success of these products on a global scale, the company received VC funding in 2018 and 2019, to develop and market a new line of products. Our Premium line features an even more effective composition of Nanomaterials (Silver and now Gold), combined with nature’s purest ingredients.

Our vision

For us, grooming is not just about tending to your pet’s appearance. Featuring silver or gold nanoparticles, meticulously combined with a selection of natural ingredients (e.g. extracts and oils), NanoSanitas™ shields our four-legged companions from pathogens, offering a better & healthier future for them and your family. We envision a worry-free co-habitation of humans and companion animals, where pets are treated like a part of the family. To facilitate this, we created a line of products that allows you to treat your pet in a way that suppresses minor skin issue avoiding their manifestation into a condition that will require extensive treatment

Our collaborations

Pet owners consider their animal companions members of the family, and as such, expect pet products to adhere to international quality and safety standards.

Carefully designed and exhaustively tested, all our products undergo exhaustive testing, which include, among others, compatibility, stability, challenge, usability and performance tests, physico-chemical characterization, pre-clinical and clinical studies etc. As quality-conscious producers, we consider these necessary pre-cautions and integrate the highest safety and quality standards into our processes and products.

To achieve this we have developed an extensive network of collaborations:

Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
Largely responsible for our pre-clinical trials and clinical testing, they provide valuable insight on matters such as: The group of Assoc. Prof. S. Papadimitriou consults us on the compatibility and suitability of products (e.g. dental gels) and performs pre-clinical and clinical tests for safety issues. Our proprietary NanoSilver technology has been tested preclinically by the group of Veterinary Assoc. Prof. N. Diakakis and of Prof. L. Papazoglou, for the treatment of inflammations providing excellent wound healing properties (furthered by NSRF grant no. T2EDK-02826). The efficacy of our silver nanoparticles has been tested by the group of Veterinary Prof. H. Papadopoulos against well-known parasites, indicating their potential as active ingredients in this area (furthered by NSRF grant no. T2EDK-02826).
Department of Materials Science and Technology, University of Crete
The group of Assoc. Prof. M. Chatzinikolaidou consults on a variety of aspects ranging from the anti-bacterial efficacy of the nanoparticles we use to their biological properties
Department of Mechanical Engineering, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Laboratory of Physical Metallurgy)
The group of Prof. N. Michailidis (founding member of our team) is involved in the development and production of our nanoparticles
Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Western Macedonia (Laboratory of Biomaterials and Computational Mechanics)
The group of Asst. Prof. A. Tsouknidas (founding member of our team) actively supports the development of innovative procedures and applications of advanced materials (Grand No 80332/T1EDK-01492)

Our team

The team is lead by an award winning team of Academics (2 Professors, 2 Post-Doc and 1 Medical doctor). In 2015, this their research experience (of more than 100 years combined) was propelled towards commercialization by 2 skilled entrepreneurs leading to the foundation of one three spin-off companies of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the largest research infrastructure in Greece.
