Jellyfish in Motion

Apoaequorin originally comes from a species of jellyfish called Aequorea victoria – a bioluminescent organism with one of the simplest nervous systems.

Quincy Bioscience is the first to utilize apoaequorin as a tool in the support of the brain in the human body and now holds a patent on the unique protein.*

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2008 was awarded to researchers Osamu Shimomura, Martin Chalfie, and Roger Y. Tsien who discovered the luminescent jellyfish protein and advanced its usefulness in science with the Nobel committee calling the discovering of the glowing protein, “has become one of the most important tools used in contemporary bioscience.” Their discovery and advancement made the work at Quincy Bioscience possible.
