Research and Development
Our main focus is on developing and commercializing DNA-based diagnostics in India
Towards this goal, we have developed a number of assay and devices. Currently we are engaged in manufacturing and validating these assays and devices in partnerships with a number of leading organizations within India and abroad.
Nucleic Acids Assays
Markers are key to detecting DNA targets related to human health and disease. We have validated primer for a large number of pathogens related to various diseases (e.g., TB - funded by the Department of Biotechnology, dengue, malaria) and more are being validated routinely.
Cost of diagnostic platforms is also equally important for its deployment under limited resources settings e.g., villages in India with no or limited access to a centralized lab. We have developed devices that are low cost and simple to use.
Enzymes and Cartridges
Enzymes and reagents as well as cartridges are essential components of nucleic acids-based assays. Development, production, and procurement of such enzymes and cartridges are also being pursued.
