The Journey of People, Passion and Possibilities!
A HISTORY OF IMPACT
As part of our expansion strategy, we established our Goat Farm Facility at Karjat (Maharashtra, India) in April, 2022 for the production of polyclonal antibodies. This facility has a capacity of more than 1000 goats.
We received the manufacturing license from CDSCO for our Covid-19 Diagnostic Kit that marked our entry into the RT-PCR Kit Manufacturing domain. We also developed indigenous master mix and enzymes for PCR kits. This further opens the avenues for exploring opportunities into growing area of molecular diagnostics.
In line with the efforts by ICMR along with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) to expand and diversify testing capacity for COVID 19 detection in Indian healthcare facility and also to support the vision of "Atmanirbhar Bharat" (self-reliant India) set by India’s honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, we at YBL developed a COVID 19 RT-PCR kit which is endorsed by the National Institute of Biologicals (NIB) for its 100% specificity and 100% sensitivity.
We launched pre-clinical cancer models for end to end solutions into drug discovery development offering isogenic models for in-vitro drug testing, Biobanking services and customized solutions for drug screening and toxicology.
At YBL, we believe in contributing back to the society and our people. Under our CSR efforts, we adopted a village in the Talasari district in Maharashtra, India to create opportunities to earn a better livelihood, support education and better healthcare for the underprivileged.
We successfully launched our world-class Stem-Cell Facility to mark our entry into the Integrated Drug Discovery and Development space along with cGMP approval for our Stem-Cell facility for in-vitro models.
We are proud to have a diverse scientific team who are always on the prowl of exploring innovative solutions in the healthcare sector. Toeing on these lines, our Antibody Phage Display Research team initiated studies for the development of Recombinant Antibodies (Camelid) both as product and service.
As an organization we always been poised to achieve continuous growth by increasing our global footprints. In 2015, we opened our first subsidiary office in Berlin, Germany followed by subsidiary office in San Diego, USA in 2018. In 2019, we flagged off our third subsidiary office in Seoul, South Korea.
Diversification of business into the arena of in-vitro research for Drug Discovery and Development was an exciting move for the organization. Between 2016-2018, we focused extensively on innovative product and service offerings into drug discovery outsourcing space and commenced research on iPSC related models for expediting and facilitating in-vitro research.
In 2012, the organization widened its horizon with development and manufacturing of recombinant antigens thereby our product basket for in-vitro Diagnostics players globally.
After the initial developmental work around infrastructure in terms of manufacturing and supply chain, we started our commercial operations globally (The first commercial shipment of Carcino-Embryonic Antigen was shipped to a renowned global client in Europe).
In 2000, our first Native Antigens facility was established in Navi Mumbai, India with minimal resources and tremendous excitement and zeal. With the committed efforts of immensely talented team of scientists, we developed our portfolio of niche Native Antigens and marked our entry into the in-vitro Diagnostics space.
In 1999, a shared passion for science and research, brought three thoroughbred professionals together; Mr. Arvind Bhanushali, Mr. Bharat Dagha and Dr. Paresh Bhanushali who joined hands together and laid the foundation with a few dedicated team members. While the beginning was humble, the passion was immense and the intent was to set a new benchmark in the in-vitro diagnostic segment and make an impact in the global space.
YBL - A LEGACY OF COMMITMENT AND EXPONENTIAL GROWTH
With a clear vision and roadmap, the dedicated efforts of the team bore fruit and YBL kept going from strength to strength, scaling one milestone of success after another, over the last 20 years. Today, the company is a name to reckon with and an undisputed leader in the development, manufacturing and supply of diagnostic reagents and have emerged as one of the leading players in the IVD (in-vitro diagnostics) market globally. In the drug discovery and development domain too, YBL has established itself as a robust and well-acclaimed player with a host of products and services that expedite and facilitate in-vitro research.
