Fluorescent pigments for medical diagnostics,
trace elements for the immune system,
the health applications of microalgae are numerous.
ALGAE AND HEALTH
If the traditional Asian pharmacopoeia describes the use of seaweed in human health for more than 4000 years, there are still few industrially produced active ingredients and pharmaceutical ingredients of marine origin. Concrete possibilities now exist thanks to developments in blue biotechnologies making available active ingredients that meet the challenges of human health: stimulation and modulation of immunity, antiviral and antibacterial activities, anticoagulant and antithrombotic properties, etc.
Other properties of algae such as fluorescence are also now available for biological analysis.
for medical diagnostics
GREENSEA has developed a real know-how in the production, extraction and purification of high purity fluorescent pigments for the pharmaceutical and biological markets. The applications of these molecules can be found in cutting-edge fields in medical diagnostics, molecular biology, and fluorescence techniques, such as flow cytometry and cell sorting (FACS), enzymatic labeling, immunodetection, or assay. fluorescence energy transfer (FRET) analyzes.
Allophycocyanin (APC), a blue pigment from the phycobilliprotein family which fluoresces in the red, is thus produced with a high level of purity to meet the requirements of medical diagnosis. GREENSEA is also able to supply with the same level of requirement other pigments such as C-Phycocyanin (C-PC), R-Phycocyanin (R-PC) , R-phycoerythrin (R-PE) and B-phycoerythrin (B-PE).
Trace elements (Iron, Zinc, Magnesium, Selenium, etc.) are naturally present in microalgae due to their role in the metabolism of these living organisms. Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated the role of these trace elements in the cellular defense mechanisms. Microalgae enriched in trace elements can enhance the defenses against various pathologies by filling certain deficiencies or inadequacies.
GREENSEA offers a whole range of microalgae enriched with bioavailable trace elements necessary for cell protection and proper functioning of the organism.
Active ingredients and pharmaceutical ingredients
Rich of an extreme chemodiversity, algae are an inexhaustible source of bioactive molecules for the pharmaceutical industry. Pigments, proteins, peptides and amino acids, polyphenols, polysaccharides and oligosaccharides or lipids present remarkable activities in various fields of human and animal health.
Thanks to its know-how and its mastery of biotechnologies, GREENSEA supports its customers in the development of high purity pharmaceutical ingredients and actives.
