History

Nanovi was founded in 2012 as a technology spin-off from the Technical University of Denmark, DTU. Since then, business activities have grown to include development, regulatory, manufacturing and commercial activities. Nanovi’s first product for human use BioXmark® is in regulatory phase in Europe, expected to be CE marked later in 2019.
