Marinova is an ISO9001 and HACCP certified company with the acumen, resources, alliances and facilities to produce and supply a range of high-purity fucoidan products under GMP. Our products range from certified organic fucoidan extracts for use in nutritional applications and cosmetic formulas through to characterized component fractions for use in pharmaceutical and medical device settings.
Marinova has two commercial facilities in Tasmania; a macro algae drying and milling facility in Triabunna, and a fucoidan extraction and fractionation facility at Cambridge.
The Triabunna facility is home to Marinova’s diving, primary processing and drying facilities. Situated 80km from Hobart on Tasmania’s beautiful East Coast, and surrounded by the Maria Island and Freycinet National Parks, this facility is central to our main seaweed harvest areas. The Triabunna facility also houses Marinova’s Undaria pinnatifida research program. This program focuses on ‘in-water’ research, assessing growth cycles, colonization rates, tidal influences, water temperature and UV light absorption on fucoidan content, sporophyll size and population density. A key aim of the research is to preserve the biodiversity within the natural marine ecosystems in which we harvest.
Situated 20km east of Hobart, Marinova’s corporate headquarters houses the world’s premier specialist fucoidan facility, manufacturing pure fucoidan extracts for nutraceuticals and skin care, as well as characterized component fractions for pharmaceutical research.
Every product manufactured in Marinova’s facilities benefits from the company's natural ethos – we use only organic-certified seaweeds grown in the cleanest ocean waters and hand-harvested on an environmentally sustainable basis. Further, all of our high-purity fucoidan products are extracted using the unique Maritech® ™ coldwater solvent-free process; utilising this process not only preserves the nature-identical properties of the fucoidan extract but also eliminates the use of environmentally damaging chemicals.
