Qualitas Health and Valicor Renewables announced a strategic partnership that will accelerate the launch of high-EPA omega-3 oil from algae. The companies have joined forces to combine their expertise and experience in biology, advanced chemistry and technology commercialization to make a significant impact on the global omega-3 market with next-generation algae-based products.
"We are excited to work with Valicor Renewables as our strategic extraction partner," says Dr. Isaac Berzin, CTO of Qualitas Health. "Exclusive access to Valicor's extraction technology gives us a significant technological advantage and reduces the time-to-market of our pure-EPA omega-3 oil from algae. Valicor's technology is proven and practical. It completes the necessary portfolio of technologies needed to manufacture an algae-based omega-3 supplement on a commercial scale."
"The collaboration between Qualitas and Valicor brings together best-in-class cultivation and strain technology with best-in-class class extraction technology, protected by robust patents" says Dr. Brian Goodall, vice president of business development at Valicor Renewables. "Valicor's extraction technology is designed to keep the natural algae polar lipids intact while avoiding the use of potentially harmful solvents.”
