What if you could build a brand-new lab and get everything set up right from the beginning? Well, that’s exactly the opportunity Origin by Ocean had in September 2020, and organic chemist Dr. Mari Granström knew exactly what she wanted. After years working as a research scientist at BASF and R&D Director at Stora Enso, Dr. Granström knew how important it was to have a formulating ELN integrated with LIMS to ensure all their detailed R&D data is captured digitally, reusable, and AI-ready from day one.
Origin by Ocean is developing the core biorefining technology to extract value from marine biomass like blue-green algae and bladderwrack. They are using this technology to produce biologically sustainable products and ingredients for food, beverage, cosmetics, and pharma.
As Chief Science Activist and Co-founder of Origin by Ocean, Dr. Granström had heard about Alchemy’s modern cloud solution for formulators and loved that it was designed for materials scientists instead of pharmaceuticals scientists. Mari had previous experience trying to make her lab work conform to software and was determined to find a solution that could fit her company’s vision and goals in terms of lab best practices, not the other way around.
“We knew Alchemy would help us move faster by giving us all our data in one place.”
