​Although we set up our laboratories in 1990, our founders – Drs Jan and Robert Knight – began their researches 11 years earlier into the unique properties of a bioluminescent marine mollusc, the Common Piddock (or Pholas dactylus, if you want to be formal about it).
They learned to cultivate the mollusc in aquaculture systems in order to obtain a sustainable and environmentally friendly product, a light-emitting protein that they named Pholasin®, and have been bringing its benefits to the commercial and medical world ever since through a technology called ABEL®(Analysis By Emitted Light).
