Our Story

Our adventure began in 2013 when founder, Eugenio Iannone joined forces with designer, Giacomo Germani to develop the first lab-on-a-chip capable of bringing diagnostics to the patient.
With a degree in electronic engineering and over 35 years’ experience in the telecommunications industry at Cisco Systems and Pirelli Labs, Eugenio was adept at designing innovative products based on cutting-edge technologies. Then, the diagnosis of a genetic renal disease changed his life completely. With over four years on dialysis and trips to the hospital every other day, his life was effectively on hold until he finally received a kidney transplant in 2012. Having spent his time in dialysis writing the definitive guide to labs-on-chips, and aware of an ever-increasing urgency to bring healthcare to the patient, Eugenio set about finding an elegant and effective solution to the problem. He teamed up with Giacomo, found support from several angel investors and the rest is history …
Except really our story is only just beginning.
dianax is no longer the passion of one man. It is the passion of a growing international team of experienced, dynamic and hard-working experts who, first and foremost, want to add value to the lives of patients by bringing healthcare closer.
They understand that for patients and their physicians, the ability to bring testing to the POINT OF NEED and to KNOW NOW is life-changing, cost-saving and, without doubt, the future of diagnostics.
