Blue biotechnology is concerned with the application of molecular biological methods to marine and freshwater organisms.
It involves the use of these organisms, and their derivatives, for multiple purposes, one of the most remarkable, the identification, process and development of new active ingredients from marine origin.
However, the potential for developing marine active ingredients remains mainly unvealed, due to the enormous diversity of sea organisms (most of them unexplored yet). INFINITEC has access to one of the largest and more diverse marine micro organisms collection, which provides a rich platform for screening all possible cosmetic activities.
Marine micro organisms are prospected and isolated strains
are collected in a library (BlueS) that will eventually scale up.
