Marine Biotechnology

The marine environment represents a highly diverse source of bioactive compounds including carbohydrates, peptides, proteins, lipids and antioxidants. These marine-derived functional ingredients have revealed numerous health benefit effects. Marine biotechnology (‘blue biotechnology’) utilizes the marine biodiversity and offers novel marine-based compounds for industries.

Bioprospecting

Marine bioprospecting can be characterized as targeted and systematic search for and development of new components, bioactive compounds or genes within the marine environment. These marine-derived compounds might be included as components in products or processes with an extensive range  of application: pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, processing industries, food, cosmetics. The result of the bioprospecting could be a purified molecule that is produced biologically or synthetically, or the entire organism. Shannon ABC, thanks to the multidisciplinary knowledge of employed scientists and modern,  well-equipped laboratories can support companies at all 4 phases of bioprospecting:
