Green Pyramid Biotech

They are working towards developing a ready-to-use biosurfactant-based formulation, that can successfully aid all household consumers to decontaminate and sanitize their fruits and vegetables before consumption.  This unique 100% organic formulation removes 99% of pesticides, chemicals, toxins, pathogens, germs and other lethal substances. Washing of fruits and vegetables in this formulation has been shown to curtail the shrinking of produce and double the shelf life of products even without refrigeration, which can have a huge market in the rural sector, where the over 70 million households have poor access or no access to electricity.  The unique selling point of their formulation is that it is odorless, tasteless, non oily, non-sticky, retains natural taste and does not require a rewash step in plain water, which not only helps save water but also simplifies the cleaning process for large-scale cleaning operations at distribution and export centers. This product finds application with farmers for exporting their produce free of any chemicals and pesticides and avoid rejection, at hotels, community centers, consumers etc.

Fluorogent Analytics Pvt. Ltd.

Fluorogent is a spin-off based on NCL’s technology created under Venture Center’s “Lab2Mkt” program. The company wishes to develop fluorescence-based reagents and diagnostic kit useful for quantitative detection of biomarkers such as cysteine and homocysteine, and glutathione (GSH), which play essential roles for regulating the redox balance of many biological processes.

Cysteine is a metabolic product of homocysteine and a precursor of the antioxidant GSH. A deficiency of cysteine leads to diseases such as decreased hematopoiesis (creation of new blood cells), leukocyte loss, psoriasis, slowed growth, liver damage, skin lesions, hair depigmentation, edema, and so on. Elevated levels of homocysterine have been recognized as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. This is also associated with various diseases or clinical conditions, which include Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, end-stage renal disease, osteoporosis, and type II diabetes.

To elucidate the complicated relationship between Cys, Hcy, and GSH and investigate the function of each biothiol in various physiological processes, the simultaneous quantitative detection of these three biothiols is very necessary.

Genrich Membranes Private Limited

Genrich Membranes Pvt. Ltd., a spin-off company based on proprietary technology from CSIR-National Chemical Laboratory, Pune, uses hollow fiber membrane technology to offer cost-effective solutions for O2 enriched sterile air for medical applications (oxygen therapy) for patients suffering from respiratory diseases (asthma, COPD, neonatal, etc.).  The developed membrane-based oxygen enrichment unit elevates the amount of O2 in ambient air to only 35%, thus making it a more energy efficient process compared to existing technologies. Moreover, the current OEU is adaptable to diverse applications (rural health centers, hospitals, home care, ambulance, oxygen booths/spas, etc.). In addition, since there is no fouling, these membrane systems can be expected to have  a long operational life with minimum maintenance.
