Frederick D. Sancilio, Ph.D. Ocean blue® products are manufactured and distributed by Sancilio and Company, Inc. (SCI), a research-based biopharmaceutical company located in Palm Beach County, Florida. Since being founded by Frederick D. Sancilio, Ph.D. in 2005, we have focused on the development, manufacture and commercialization of Omega-3 fatty acid based products that incorporate highly refined Omega-3 fatty acids.
Our Florida-based research laboratories are staffed with highly qualified and experienced scientists, and our fully-operational cGMP production facilities enable us to manufacture products that are then sold through our domestic and international distribution channels. The SCI team currently consists of approximately 150 employees, five of whom hold a Ph.D. or an M.D.
We began commercial distribution of our first Omega-3 fatty acid product, Ocean blue® Professional Omega-3 2100™, in the United States in 2009 and in Italy in 2010. While Ocean blue® Professional Omega-3 2100™ does not require a prescription, it is sold "behind the counter" in pharmacies, by doctors in their offices and directly through our website.
