CORAL BIOME is located in the Grand Luminy biotech incubator on the Luminy science and technology park in Marseilles, in a dynamic environment combining biotechnology companies (HalioDx, Innate-Pharma, etc.) and top-ranked academic research including CIML in immunology and IBDM in developmental Biology.
We cultivate hundreds of marine invertebrates in a closed aquaculture system (CAS) comprising of seawater tanks (80 L to 1000 L). CAS has become widely recognized by scientists as the preferred production technology to provide the benefits of controlled culture conditions, regularity of production and reduced environmental impact.
Our facility is also equipped with a research laboratory to extract bioactive compounds, conduct genetic analysis, grow cell cultures and study our samples.
