Lamy pacific blue: Lamy Pacific Blue Ink Review

Lamy Pacific Blue Ink Review

Lamy Pacific Blue ink is a new, yet old color introduced by Lamy in 2017. Lamy’s new AL-Sport color for 2017 is Pacific Blue, a bright sky blue anodized aluminum body and cap with Lamy’s distinctive clip used on the Safari and Al-Star pens. As in past years, Lamy has also introduced a corresponding color for its new Lamy AL-Sport fountain pen. This year Lamy has reintroduced its turquoise color ink as Pacific Blue, a bright and vibrant turquoise color fountain pen ink, complementing the Al-Sport fountain pen. Lamy, which is a German pen company, has been well respected and regarded as a high quality, functional, and innovated in its pen designs. Lamy has used this ingenuity and high quality approach in producing its fountain pen inks.

Lamy Pacific Blue Ink

Please note the following features we experienced while testing Lamy Pacific Blue ink:

Testing Factors

We used a glass dip pen made by J. Herbin for this ink review on high quality Rhodia Bloc N. 18 paper. The dip pen has a fine nib equivalent tip.

Bottle Sizes

Lamy Pen Company lives by its innovation and German ingenuity. Its ink and bottles continue with this theme in their design and functionality. The glass Lamy ink bottle contains 50 ml. of Pacific Blue ink, but its shape and purpose is what is quite ingenious. The round bottle is not flat on the bottom, but has a round bulb or protrusion at its center which acts as a built in ink well. The bottle then snaps perfectly into a plastic extension with a flat bottom for holding the ink bottle. The plastic extension also contains a roll of blotting paper for cleaning your nib and pen while filing it with ink.

Cost

When you think of German engineering, you think luxury and expensive. Well, with Lamy Pacific Blue ink, still think luxurious color but the price is absolutely reasonable at $10.50 retail for a 50 ml. glass bottle, which includes a roll of Lamy ink blotter paper. Lamy Pacific Blue ink as well as all Lamy inks is a great value.

Dry Time

The dry time we experienced using the glass dip pen is approximately 6-7 seconds, which is not lightning fast, but reasonable enough for a daily use ink.

Bleed Through

There was no bleeding during normal use. However, during the cotton swabbing of ink to paper, there was some bleeding when the cotton swab was at its wettest.

Feathering

Lamy Pacific Blue ink produced clean and crisp lines that were very distinct without any feathering (again using Rhodia paper). During the water test, however, there was some significant feathering experienced.

Water Test

After running a wet cotton swab over Lamy Pacific Blue ink samples, that we let dry for a about 3 minutes, we experienced color smearing and some feathering and line distortion. Lamy inks are not waterproof, nor are they water resistant. However, these results are pretty typical for most water based dye inks we have tested.

Shading

With the right nib, there can be some shading experienced with Lamy Pacific Blue ink which you can see with the cotton swab test. With the glass dip pen, however, we did not experience much shading at all.

Conclusion about the Lamy Pacific Blue ink

Lamy Pacific Blue ink, although very similar if not identical to Lamy Turquoise ink, is a great overall blue ink. It has a vibrant color, is very inexpensive for such a large bottle of German ink, has a cool and unique bottle design, and comes with blotting paper, etc. We love Lamy inks as a non-waterproof, water based dye ink because of their color, flow, and reasonable price. Make sure you pick up a bottle of Lamy Pacific Blue ink before they are gone.

Introducing the Lamy Al-Star Pacific Blue Pen Collection

We are thrilled to introduce the new Lamy Al-Star Pacific Blue, the special edition color for 2017!  The loved Lamy Al-Star, made of anodized aluminum for its body and cap with its internationally recognized large chrome clip. The same clip design can also be found in the plastic body version Lamy Safari pen.  These pens are loved by both pen enthusiasts and novices alike, for their unique design, ease of use and superbly manufactured German nibs.

Lamy Al-star Pacific Blue

As in past years such as 2015’s Copper Orange and 2016’s Charged Green Al-Star colors, Lamy Al-Star Pacific Blue is a special edition release and when they are gone, they are gone!  We fully expect our inventory to sell out quickly and although we will continue to restock the pen as long as we are able from our distributor, we suggest you purchase your 2017’s Lamy Al-Star in Pacific Blue right away.

Lamy’s Pacific Blue Al-Star is a bright, vibrant blue color, almost turquoise, representing the gorgeous waters of the Pacific Ocean.  As most of our customers have multiple Al-Star pens, in a variety of colors, Pacific Blue will make a wonderful addition to your Lamy Al-Star and Safari collection, or a perfect color to start your collection with if you don’t have one already. Both the Lamy Al-Star and Lamy Safari fountain pens are well known for their quality, performance and value in the writing community and often chosen as the best starter fountain pens.

As with all other Lamy Al-Star colors, Pen Chalet is offering the Pacific Blue in a fountain pen, rollerball pen and ballpoint pen option.  Additionally, Lamy has also introduced its ink products, both bottle ink and 5 pack cartridges in Pacific Blue, which is a turquoise blue color.

Pen Chalet carries the Pacific Blue fountain pen, which comes in extra fine, fine and medium nib sizes, but we also carry Lamy nibs that are easy to interchange and swap with your Al-Star (or Safari) in fun larger nibs, such as broad, and italic 1.1mm, 1.5mm and 1.9mm sizes.  The retail price for the Lamy Al-Star Pacific Blue fountain pen is $47.00, but is offered at Pen Chalet at a discount.  The Lamy Al-Star Pacific Blue rollerball and ballpoint pens retail for $42.00 or $33.60 respectively and you can place your order today!

As with all Lamy Al-Star fountain pens and Lamy Safari fountain pens, your pen will come with one Lamy ink cartridge, but no converter.  We suggest that you also purchase a Lamy LZ24 converter to go with your Lamy Al-Star Pacific Blue fountain pen so that you may enjoy all your favorite bottled ink colors with your new pen.   Lamy Pacific Blue glass bottled ink and Lamy Pacific Blue ink cartridges are also available at Pen Chalet for $8.40 and $3.60 respectively, making Lamy ink one of the best values in the ink market today.  The new 2017 Lamy Al-Star Pacific Blue collection is sure to be a hit, so don’t wait.  Happy Writing!

Fountain Pen Review: 2017 Special Edition Lamy AL-star Pacific

Lamy AL-star PACIFIC is here!!! Woohoo!!! Lamy has granted my wish for an aquamarine AL-star this year!!! In my Charged Green AL-star review last year, I mentioned that an aquamarine or yellow AL-star fountain pen would be cool. Well, here it is. Here is the 2017 Special Edition Lamy AL-star fountain pen in a lovely metallic aquamarine color that perfectly complements the 2011 Aquamarine Safari.

Since 2014, Lamy has used compact cardboard boxes as presentation boxes for their pens, instead of the bulky plastic ones. An elastic in the felt-lined bed inside the box ensures that the pen stays in place, preventing breakage during transport. These boxes are sturdy, easy to store, and do not take up too much space. Last year’s special edition AL-star and Safari pens came in similar compact boxes, too.

The 2017 Special Edition Lamy AL-star Pacific in its presentation box.

The AL-star Pacific pen in this review is a fountain pen, but the line also includes a ballpoint and a rollerball. For the last four years, Lamy has been coming up with special edition ink colors to match their special edition pens. This year, the AL-star Pacific fountain pen has an accompanying ink available in T52 bottles and Giant ink cartridges that fit most Lamy fountain pens. An ink-x eraser is also available in the same color as the Pacific pens and ink.

Lamy’s recent special edition AL-star pens (Bluegreen, Copper Orange, Charged Green, and Pacific) come in lovely bright colors. The Pacific, whose color depicts both ocean and sky, has a deep, almost ‘electric’ aquamarine shade and green undertones in an anodized aluminum finish. I love this pen’s aquamarine color because it’s a happy and cheery blue.

The Pacific has a happy blue color.

The Lamy AL-star is a good pen for all fountain pen users — newbies/beginners, collectors, students, and artists. At 22 grams and 5.5 inches (capped), the AL-star is a well-balanced fountain pen: not too short, but not too long, either. It’s not heavy, but not light. It’s just right for small or big hands, comfortable to use, and sturdy, too!

The AL-star’s barrel has an ink window that shows the ink converter or cartridge inside. It allows me to check on my pen’s ink level without having to unscrew the barrel from the section. The AL-star’s cap is round, but two sides of the barrel are flattened. The Lamy logo is etched on one side of the barrel, towards the end.

The AL-star has a transparent gray plastic section.

The AL-star’s signature triangular section has a grip that gives the writer a firm hold on the pen while writing. An anti-slipping brake near the end of the section prevents the writer’s fingers from slipping into the nib while writing. Unlike the Safari pens’ matching body and section materials/colors, AL-stars have transparent gray plastic section.

A great feature of Lamy fountain pens is the interchangeability of their nibs across most of their product lines. The AL-star shares the same feed and nib with the Safari, Vista, Joy, Nexx, and Studio. The available nibs are extra-fine (EF), fine (F), medium (M), broad (B), and left-handed. The AL-star can also be fitted with italic nibs ranging from 1.1mm to 1.9mm.

Lamy’s proprietary piston operated Z24 and Z26 converters can be used to fill the fountain pen with ink from a bottle, but the Z24 is a more suitable converter because it has two tiny nipples that fit snugly into the small grooves in the upper part of the section. When the nipples are fitted in the grooves, the converter stays in place, preventing messy ink spills. Giant ink cartridges are also available in Pacific and Lamy’s regular ink colors (blue washable, black, red, turquoise, green and blue-black).

The Z24 converter fits snugly into the AL-star section.

Lamy has previously issued two blue AL-star pens: Silver Blue and Blue Ocean. Silver Blue was discontinued in 2010 (I cannot find any reference to its year of issue), but Ocean Blue is included in Lamy’s regular AL-star lineup since 2009 after its first issue as a special edition pen in 2007.

Three blue AL-star fountain pens: Silver Blue, Ocean Blue, and Pacific.

Note that the Lamy logo in the Silver Blue and Blue Ocean pens have deeper and more pronounced lines, compared to the logo of the Pacific.
The Pacific AL-star is the aluminum version of the 2011 Aquamarine Safari, but I’m not complaining.

I have done a number of AL-star and Safari fountain pen reviews in the past, but I have not discussed the differences between these two pens. The greatest difference is the pens’ materials: AL-star is aluminum, Safari is plastic. The AL-star has a transparent gray plastic section, while the Safari matches the pen body’s material and color. The AL-star is a bit heavier than the Safari, although this is not noticeable. Aside from these, there are some subtle differences in their design, see the photos below. 

Both pens share the same clip, but the Safari’s cap has an indentation where the clip is inserted into the cap.

AL-star fountain pens have black plastic cross finials, and most Safaris have the same finials. The Safari in this picture was issued in 2011, when Lamy made Safaris with finials in the same color and material of the pen’s body.
The Lamy logo is debossed in the Safari, while the outline is simply engraved in the AL-star.
The AL-star’s barrel end has a plastic black button cap, while the Safari’s button is from the same color and material of its body. Both are engraved “Germany.”

Lamy AL-star fountain pens (from top): Aluminum, Graphite, Silver Green, Silver Blue, Ocean Blue, Black Purple, Ruby Red, Pearl, Bluegreen, Charged Green, Copper Orange, and Pacific.

The matching ink for the Pacific pen, also called Pacific, is a lovely bright turquoise/aqumarine ink with more blue than green. It reminds me of the sea and the sky on a bright summer day.

The Pacific ink is available in proprietary Lamy cartridges and in 50ml T52 bottles that come with a roll of ink blotter to clean the pen after filling, or to blot writing. The bottle has a small basin at the bottom, to allow filling when the ink level is low.

The Pacific ink (right) is the same as the Turquoise ink in Lamy’s regular production line. I’m not sure why Lamy did not issue a new ink for the Pacific, or why they had to repackage their Turquoise ink. If you already have Lamy Turqouise, then getting a bottle of the Pacific is not really necessary. I noticed though, that the Pacific ink comes in the new special edition presentation box, and bottle cap matches the pen’s aquamarine color.

Below are swatches of the Pacific ink together with other turquoise/aqumarine inks.

Lamy Pacific ink in single and double passes. The double passes swab shows a darker shade of the ink. 

Pacific and Turquoise. Same ink, no difference at all.

Lamy Pacific is almost similar to J. Herbin Bleu Pervenche, although the Pacific is more expressive. Pacific is lighter than Robert Oster Bondi Blue, which has more shading and sheen. 

I noticed this red sheen while looking at the double passes ink swab of the Pacific ink. It’s beautiful, and I’d love to see this when I write with this ink.

The Pacific is a well-behaved ink. It has excellent flow and lubrication, medium to high shading, with average drying time. This ink is very easy to clean, does not stain, and has a pretty color.

Like all the previous special edition AL-star fountain pens, I love the Pacific and the ink that came with it. The fountain pen is versatile (has interchangeable nibs), simple, minimalistic, and helpful to newbies (triangular section grip). The metallic finish has a special glow that brings warmth to the aquamarine color of the Pacific AL-star. The AL-star may be prone to scratches because of its material, but given the proper care, these pens will last for a long time.

If you haven’t gotten one of these special edition Pacific AL-star fountain pens yet, go get one now!

I received the fountain pen in this review at no cost from Lamy’s authorized and exclusive distributor in the Philippines, the Times Trading Company. In the Philippines, the AL-star Pacific fountain pen and ink (and other Lamy products) are made available by Times Trading Company, through their kiosks at National Bookstore branches around Metro Manila.

Lamy products are also available at Scribe Writing Essentials, a specialty store offering fountain pens, inks, and paper products. For their complete location/address, contact numbers, and store hours, visit http://www.scribewritingessentials.com/stores/.

Lamy AL-star pens are widely available from pen sellers worldwide. For a list of Lamy retailers, visit http://www.lamy.com/content/find_a_retailer/index_eng.html.

Hi Fly Airbus A340-313HGW Makes History with Antarctica Flight

(24 Nov 2021)
 
Hi Fly has made history by landing an Airbus
A340 in Antarctica for the first time.

Never before has an A340 landed on an Antarctic
blue glacial ice runway.

The aircraft will be used this season to fly a
small number of tourists, alongside scientists and essential cargo
to the White Continent.

The Hi Fly 9H-SOL is an A340-313HGW (High Gross
Weight) with a maximum take-off weight of 275 tons. Its
exceptional range and 4-engine redundancy makes it ideal for
this type of remote operation.

Also, as there is no fuel in Wolf’s Fang Runway,
Antarctica, the plane carried 77 tons of fuel.

Hi Fly has made history by landing an Airbus A340 in Antarctica for the first time. Picture by Marc Bow

Captain Carlos Mirpuri, Hi Fly Vice President, and his crew flew the widebody aircraft, from Cape Town to the White Continent and back.
The journey is 2,500 nautical miles, flying for just over five
hours each way.

As his Captain’s log is an adventure in itself, we
have published it in full:

“Captains Log – Hi Fly 801 and 802 – 2 November
2021

The crew assembled and departed the hotel in Cape
Town at 5 am local. Transportation took 30 minutes to CPT airport.
Processing through the airport took another 30 minutes and we
arrived at the aircraft at 6 am, with two hours left to our STD
(Scheduled Time of Departure).

Engineers and Ground Operations staff had left the
hotel an hour earlier, so when we arrived at the aircraft
refueling was completed and cargo loading was underway. We
expected 23 passengers, all staff from the customer, and as this
was the first flight of the season, most of the ground support
equipment that we would need in WFR (Wolf’s Fang Runway,
Antarctica) was actually in our cargo compartments. The first two
sorties are solely for the purpose of setting up the operation
down in Antarctica, ahead of the 2021/2022 summer season.

The 2500 nm between CPT and WFR would take us
5h20m on the way down, and 5h30m on the return. As this was the
very first flight, with limited support on the ground, we planned
for a 3h turnaround time in WFR.

It would be a long day for the crew but the
excitement of participating in such a unique event stood above
anything else.

As always we start with a crew briefing on
arriving at the aircraft. This is not just another flight, there
are specificities related to this very remote operation we would
be conducting, the harsh environment we would face, and the need
to ensure proper protective clothing would be on board.

While cabin checks and catering loading was
undergoing, me and my crew were inspecting the aircraft, checking
its systems, loading the route into the navigation computers, and
briefing the details of our departure.

Passengers arrived 20 minutes before STD. It was
exactly 8 am local time when we pushed back from the gate.
On-time. Every time. This is the Motto at Hi Fly.

We lined up on runway 01 but had to pause for a
moment before launching; I spotted intense bird activity over the
runway and asked the tower to roll the truck in charge of scaring
them out, at eventually they moved out of the way. The last thing
we want is a bird strike and potential engine damage on any
flight. At 8:19 am we were finally airborne. A beautiful morning
in Cape Town and magnificent views.

There is no fuel in WFR. We carried 77 tons of
fuel. 9H-SOL is an A340-313HGW (High Gross Weight) with a maximum
take-off weight of 275 tons.

It is an airplane that delivers, every time.
Robust, comfortable and safe, performs well in this environment.

Its 4 engines redundancy and very long range, make
it the ideal airplane for this type of mission.

The route to WFR was almost direct, after
complying with the instrument departure procedure clearance issued
by CPT air traffic control. Soon we were handed over to
Johannesburg oceanic through CPDLC / ADS, avoiding therefore the
tiring and noisy long range HF communication that dates back to
the 50s. Digital communication is the norm these days in most air
navigation regions. We only lost data link connection 250 miles
before WFR. But at around 180 miles from destination we could
reach WFR via VHF. It is not an air traffic control, just a person
that has a hand held portable radio that looks after the runway.
And indeed they look very well for its condition.

South of 65 degrees we revert to polar navigation
techniques, and use True heading as reference.

Also a plotting chart is used to ensure we are not
drifting off course. During the route we receive via ACARS
(another digital system of communication), frequent weather
reports from WFR passed to us through our operations in Lisbon.
The guys at WFR have an Iridium Satphone, the only means to
communicate from that part of the Globe. Forecasters do a great
job, and we only launch to Antarctica when the weather meets our
dispatch requirements. But a forecast is a forecast, and when you
fly to the end of the world you need frequent assurance that the
actual weather meets the forecast.

Weather was looking great, and closing to the top
of our descent they are also supposed to pass us runway friction
reports. This is measured by a car properly equipped, that covers
the length of the runway taking measurements every 500 meters. The
frictions were also all above what we considered as minimum, so we
started our descent.

Carrying fuel to cover both ways means we would be
landing at maximum landing weight of 190 tons. Add the fact that
we are operating to an airfield carved out of blue glacial ice and
one easily understands that the first ever Airbus A340 landing
there attracted a lot of attention and anxiety. But we at the
front office were confident that we had done our homework
properly.

Our operations department conducted a several
months preparation of this flight and the success of our first
landing is testimony to a job well done.

Even a visit to WFR, on a business jet carrying
scientists, was performed 2 days before our flight, by captain
Antonios Efthymiou. This is considered a C category airport, and
except for this first flight, all crew will have observed a flight
from the cockpit before they operate.

A blue glacial ice runway is hard. It can stand a
heavy airplane on it. Its depth is 1,4 kms of hard air free ice.
The next important thing is that the cooler it is the better.
Grooving is carved along the runway by special equipment, and
after cleaning and carving we get an adequate braking coefficient;
the runway being 3000 meters long, landing and stopping an A340
that heavy of that airfield wouldnt be a problem. At least not on
paper, as never an A340 landed before in blue glacial ice.

The reflection is tremendous, and proper eyewear
helps you adjust your eyes between the outside view and the
instrumentation. The non-flying pilot has an important role in
making the usual plus extra callouts, especially in the late
stages of the approach.

It is not easy to spot the runway, but at one
point we have to see it, as absolutely no navigation aids exist in
WFR and from around 20 miles we must be in visual contact.

We finally spotted the runway alignment, and
started configuring early, selecting flaps and landing gear to be
fully stabilized 10 miles before the runway. There is also no
visual glide slope guidance, and the blending of the runway with
the surrounding terrain and the immense white desert around, makes
height judgment challenging, to say the least.

The altimeters in cold weather also suffer from
temperature errors, and need adjustments. All this was accounted
for. We flew a textbook approach to an eventful landing, and
aircraft performed exactly as planned. When we reached taxi speed
I could hear a round of applause from the cabin. We were joyful.
After all we were writing history.

The turnaround time was much less time than the
planned 3 hours. Our Flight Ops and ground ops did an impeccable
job and so did our engineers. A true winning team. Equipped for
extreme cold we venture outside, greeted people, seen details and
places of the runway for a better confidence in the system put in
place. All looks good to launch repeatable operations to and from
Antarctica.

Take off was uneventful, as so was the returning
flight. Customer was happy, we were happy. All goals for this
first flight had been met. The event was registered by our
reporter Marc Bow.” END of Captain’s log.

The report will include rigorous analysis based on extensive qualitative and quantitative data including interviews with top industry executives and the McKinsey Global Fashion Index, a database of more than 500 companies that tracks industry sales as well as operating and economic profit.

Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max 512GB / MGDL3 Smartphone (Pacific Blue)

Meet the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

This is the iPhone 12 Pro Max. A14 Bionic , the fastest iPhone processor. Pro Camera System that delivers stunning low-light performance. And an enlarged Super Retina XDR display. This is a new era for the iPhone.

This is the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Enlarged Super Retina XDR 6.7-inch display.1 Ceramic Shield front panel with 4x lower risk of display damage if dropped.Get stunning low-light performance with the best Pro camera system on iPhone. Optical zoom with 5x range. Filming, editing and playback of cinematic quality video in the standard Dolby Vision . Night mode for portraits and augmented reality to a new level with the LiDAR scanner. Powerful processor A14 Bionic . And new MagSafe accessories that instantly magnetize for faster wireless charging.These are impressive possibilities.

Less in the box. As a result, there is less carbon footprint.
How much less? Imagine taking 450,000 cars off the road for a year.
IPhone 12 Pro Max can use the power adapters, EarPods with Lightning connector, and USB ‑ A / Lightning cables you already own. Billions of such accessories have been sold around the world – and often buyers simply do not need new ones. Therefore, Apple decided to exclude them from the kit for the entire iPhone line.This will help reduce carbon emissions, as well as the extraction and use of valuable materials. In addition, it reduces the size of the package, which means more products can fit into the shipping containers – which ultimately will reduce the overall volume of transportation. Apple also helps its partners and contractors switch to renewable energy sources. All of these measures reduce carbon emissions by 2 million metric tons per year.

Please note

Power adapter and headphones are not included and must be purchased separately.

Pacific Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry. G. B. Elyakova (TIBOCH)

TIBOCH

The Institute was established in accordance with the order of the Council of Ministers of the RSFSR dated October 03, 1963 No. 4297-r and the Resolution of the Presidium of the USSR Academy of Sciences dated March 06, 1964 No. 79 as the Institute of Biologically Active Substances of the Far Eastern Branch of the Siberian Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences, which was renamed to the Pacific Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Far Eastern Scientific Center of the USSR Academy of Sciences in accordance with the decree of the Presidium of the USSR Academy of Sciences of September 28, 1972 No.No. 874. The Pacific Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences was renamed into the Institution of the Russian Academy of Sciences The Pacific Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences in accordance with the Resolution of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences of December 18, 2007 No. 274. Resolution of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences of May 10 2011 № 95 The Institute was named after Academician G.B. Elyakov. Decree of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences dated December 13, 2011 No.No. 262 the type and name of the Institute was changed from the Institution of the Russian Academy of Sciences of the Pacific Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry named after V.I. G.B. Elyakov of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences at the Federal State Budgetary Institution of Science Pacific Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry named after V.I. G.B. Elyakov of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. In accordance with the Federal Law of September 27, 2013 No. 253-FZ “On the Russian Academy of Sciences, Reorganization of State Academies of Sciences and Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation” and the order of the Government of the Russian Federation of December 30, 2013 No.№ 2591-r The Institute was transferred to the jurisdiction of the Federal Agency for Scientific Organizations (FANO Russia).

Pacific Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry. G.B. Elyakov of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences conducts research in the field of bioorganic chemistry, biochemistry, molecular immunology, organic synthesis of natural compounds, marine microbiology, systematics of higher plants and biotechnology.The objects of research are marine organisms of the Ocean (including microorganisms) and unique terrestrial plants of the Russian Far East. All major classes of biomolecules are studied at the Institute: proteins, including enzymes, nucleic acids (primarily genes that carry information about important enzymes), carbohydrates, lipids, and various low molecular weight bioregulators.

Marine organisms are a rich source of new natural compounds that differ from those of terrestrial organisms, both in chemical structure and in the characteristics of biological action.To date, about twenty thousand low molecular weight natural marine compounds have been obtained in the world. Unique chemical structures, unusually high biological activity, participation in intra- and interspecific relations of marine communities – all this attracts great attention to substances of marine origin.

The Institute is searching for new natural compounds, establishing their chemical structure, studying biosynthesis, taxonomic distribution, and biological functions.For the first time, the chemical structure of more than 500 new natural compounds from marine and terrestrial organisms has been isolated and established. New structural groups of these substances have been discovered, for example, bipolar sphingolipids and alkaloids. The structure-activity relationship is studied for individual series of natural compounds.

The chemical properties of marine secondary metabolites are investigated. An unusual migration of double bonds in the holostan row and original rearrangements of the skeletal systems of a number of unusual marine sesquiterpenoids, the transformation of plant trans-stilbenes into cis-derivatives, etc. were found.

A targeted synthesis of natural compounds with unique biological properties, as well as their derivatives and analogues, is carried out. The syntheses of natural quinoid compounds and alkaloids are developing especially actively.

The mechanisms of biological action of natural compounds at the cellular and subcellular levels are being studied. At the same time, modern methods of molecular and cellular biology are used. The Institute has created a system of biotesting, including in vivo testing and the use of magnetic resonance imaging, in vitro testing on a panel of various cell lines and on sea urchin embryos, as well as in silico to predict biological activity.

Collection of marine microorganisms, created at the Institute, associated with marine invertebrates and fish, as well as isolated from sea water and sea bottom sediments of various regions of the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic oceans, collected during expedition voyages aboard the R / V Akademik Oparin (1985- 2002), became the base for chemical research. More than 100 new species, one new family and a series of new genera of marine bacteria have been validly described. As a result of chemical research of marine microorganisms, numerous new biologically active substances of microbial origin were found and studied, including peptides, glycosides, phenolic derivatives, quinoid compounds with antimicrobial and antitumor properties.

Much attention is paid to studies of enzymes of marine invertebrates, fish, crustaceans, and marine microorganisms. A number of glycan hydrolases, nucleases and proteinases with unusual specificity and mechanism of action have been isolated and studied.

The Institute is studying the molecular basis of a number of diseases, including yersiniosis, which is characteristic of the Far East region – the Far East scarlet fever. The structure of a whole series of so-called antigenic polysaccharides from a large number of gram-negative bacteria, including marine ones, and lectins from marine invertebrates and algae has been studied.New diagnostic methods are being developed, and some of the created diagnostics are already being used in medicine.

Comprehensive studies of bioactive substances from Far Eastern terrestrial plants have led to the discovery and establishment of the structure of a number of new secondary metabolites and the development of a chemotaxonomic approach to improve their taxonomy. A number of plants have been discovered that can be used as sources of substances valuable for medicine and the food industry.

The Institute is actively working in the field of genetic engineering, genomics and proteomics.The nucleotide sequences of a number of genes of marine invertebrates and various microorganisms have been deciphered. A series of recombinant proteins has been obtained.

At present, the staff of the Institute:

304 staff units

of which:

✔ 141 researchers.

Together with graduate students and part-time employees, the institute employs about 340 people,

including:

✔ 52 young scientists,

✔ 21 graduate students,

✔ 96 candidates of science,

✔ 28 Doctors of Science,

✔ 2 Corresponding Member of RAS,

✔ 2 Academician of RAS

Many chemical compounds studied in the laboratories of the Institute have a pronounced physiological effect on living organisms, including humans.On the basis of these substances from renewable biological raw materials, the Institute develops new therapeutic and therapeutic-prophylactic agents, veterinary drugs, food additives and other biological products, as well as creates technologies for their production. The Institute has created a series of new domestic drugs approved for use and production in Russia, including Histochrome for Ophthalmology, Histochrome for Cardiology, Collagenase KK and, recently, Maksar. Biologically active food additives and other drugs and products developed at TIBOCH FEB RAS are well known.Among them there are four non-alcoholic balsams of the Herbamarin and Zosterin series, a series of dietary supplements “Golden Horn”, a series of dietary supplements “Fukolam”, “Ussuriyskiy balsam”, etc. biological products from marine, terrestrial and microbiological raw materials, as well as to obtain pilot batches of these substances. The production facility is located in a specially equipped building on the shores of the Amur Bay; there are also experimental sites in the main building of TIBOCH and at the Marine Experimental Station.
