Microalgae enabling precision medicine

BlueCare discovery, a marine biotechnology startup, develops microalgae active ingredients for healthcare. We draw our inspiration from the oceans and their immense biodiversity, to develop innovative medical treatments that are both effective and environmentally friendly. The field of application for innovative microalgae bioactive compounds is huge ; they could, for example, help prevent Alzheimer's disease. With its proprietary platform, BlueCare will develop & distribute solutions for the nutraceutical, biomedicinal, dermato-cosmetic and animal health sectors, contributing to the development of the enormous potential of microalgae.

Sustainable Development Goals

By developing bioactive compounds that tackle chronic diseases before the onset of symptoms, BlueCare is contributing to the healthcare revolution.

We commit to develop active compounds that are stable and effective during treatments, and safe for the environment once they have been eliminated by the body.
