The pharmaceutical industry is in a transformative phase. Demand for natural, effective medicines continues to rise. At the centre of this change are microalgae, including cyanobacteria, which are proving to be potent resources for therapeutic agents that have the potential to reshape the medical frontier.
Harnessing rich nutrients with cutting-edge technology
Microalgae are photosynthetic organisms that possess a remarkable range of biologically active compounds. Due to their rich nutrient profile and myriad therapeutic properties, they are becoming an important part of the pharmaceutical repertoire. However, the exploitation of these compounds requires state-of-the-art technology to ensure efficiency, highest quality and sustainability.
Optimisation of microalgae growth
The Flat-Panel-Airlift-Photobioreactor (FPA) from Subitec significantly changes the process of microalgae cultivation. With its optimal light distribution and unmatched CO2 diffusion capabilities, this technology promotes optimal microalgal growth, resulting in the constant production of highly potent microalgal biomass.
