Nature serving technology
The haemostatic and wound-healing products of tomorrow


Alginates are plant biopolymers extracted from the family of brown algae – the laminaria – the properties of which were first discovered by the seaweed gatherers of Brittany, known as goémoniers in French.

Sailors and algae harvesters had noticed that the algae produced a substance which, when applied to a wound, stopped its bleeding and speeded up healing.

From 1949, Laboratoires Brothier harnessed the thickening properties of these laminaria, transforming them into « therapeutic » fibres.

Healthcare Professionals

Transmitting knowledge and sharing experience
Interaction between healthcare professionals for the sharing of knowledge


Tailored care by multidisciplinary teams is particularly important to help patients face wounds that can affect their physical and psychological integrity.

To provide the patient with better follow-up, in a hospital setting and a private practice setting, by surgeons and nurses, professionals must undergo training and continuously update their practices.
