Omega 3 poly-unsaturated fatty acids


Omega-3 and other PUFAs for pharmaceutical applications

Novasep proposes unique cGMP manufacturing services for omega-3 and other poly-unsaturated fatty acids from pilot- to very large-scale. We have an extensive experience handling and purifying omega-3 from various biomass sources including fish oil, algae, etc.

Our product capabilities (*) include:

  • Highly purified EPA (>96%)
  • Highly purified DHA (>95%)
  • High purity EPA/DHA mixtures at any targeted ratio
  • Other fatty acids (omega 6, 7, etc.) and derivatives generated by semi-synthesis
depending on geography or products, limitations may apply.


Novasep operates the largest cGMP purification plant of omega-3 and poly-unsaturated fatty acids in the world, based on Novasep’s Varicol® continuous chromatography and other proprietary single-column chromatography technologies.

PRODUCTION CAPACITIESNovasep Solvent Recylcing Unit Omega 3

According to the amount of unsaturated fatty acid you would like to produce, we operate several manufacturing facilities with adapted utilities and infrastructures:

  • Pilot and moderate-scale productions from a few kilos to few tons
  • Large-scale productions from 100’s to 1000’s tons

If you are looking for greener process options, we can also propose omega-3 purification processes based on our Supersep® Supercritical Fluid Chromatography technology at pilot scale.



As we are able to comply with HACCP standards, we can also propose our contract manufacturing services to high-end food supplements and functional ingredients producers.
