Founded in 2013, Lobster Unlimited, LLC has developed new ways to recycle the waste from lobster processing and render it into useful and commercially viable products.
Working with Cape Seafood, of Saco, Maine and Ariel Laboratories, of South Plainfield, New Jersey, Lobster Unlimited has developed a healing skin care cream comprised of 15% lobster hemocyanin. Informal trials and focus groups are giving this product rave reviews. Lobster Unlimited holds a patent for the use of lobster hemocyanin to treat skin lesions. With the working trade name of LobsteRx, market launch for this new product is planned for 2017.
In 2013, Lobster Unlimited developed a relationship with Calcium Silicate Corporation, of Lake Forest, Florida and initiated strategies to convert waste lobster shell into useful soil amendments. This effort culminated in the formation of Coastal Chitin, LLC of Saco, Maine, a processing facility that grinds, dries and processes waste lobster shell into pelletized organic fertilizers and other valuable chitosan products. Lobster Unlimited retains a stake based on royalties on sales.
Specialized hemocyanins from mollusks and arthropods have a range of uses in the biomedical field. Because of their scarcity, these hemocyanins are highly valued and attain premium price points. Lobster Unlimited, in collaboration with Lampire Biological Laboratories of Pipersville, PA, is currently developing a purified lobster serum targeted to this important market.
Lobster Unlimited has conducted a series of laboratory tests which support the anti-viral power of lobster serum when introduced to viral cultures. Currently, Lobster Unlimited has one patent for this discovery, with additional patents pending for viral and neoplastic treatments. These laboratory results are confirmed in a series of informal trials on human subjects who have treated viral skin conditions, like shingles and warts, with purified lobster serum.
Led by Dr. Robert Bayer, Director of The Lobster Institute at The University of Maine, Lobster Unlimited is comprised of five members who have a range of experience in the business, science and academic sectors. Collectively, the group holds more than 20 U.S. Patents and numerous trademarks.
