Our Vision

With tailor-made nanocarriers, we will set new standards for the targeted, efficient and low-risk use of active pharmaceutical ingredients and other highly potent substances for medical and life science applications.


SmartDyeLivery is developing and commercializing a universal platform technology based on functionalized nanoparticles that can be used to transport active pharmaceutical ingredients or other cargoes to the desired site of action. Our "smart" nanocarriers thus protect the body from undesired side effects of highly potent substances and the cargo from premature degradation. Due to the different functionalization of the nanoparticles they can be utilized for a wide range of applications, e.g. in the field of therapy and diagnostics. Our patented functionalization with dyes not only enables cell type-specific transport, but also parallel measurement of organ function and the efficiency of drug transport in a unique theranostic approach.

Our innovative technology is based on extensive preliminary work and close cooperation with the Friedrich Schiller University Jena and the University Hospital Jena and is comprehensively patented.

The company was founded in 2014 in Jena, Thuringia. Since the beginning of 2016, we have been actively pursuing the implementation of our vision. Since then we have grown steadily and have been able to continuously expand our competencies and our network.


SmartDyeLivery was awarded the special prize for young companies as part of the Thuringian Innovation Award 2015.
