Although the Company was formally founded and legalized in the month of May 2012, but a lot of research and validation has gone in since last decade by the founder Dr. Birendranath Banerjee and his team.
Initial Years And Inception
Dr.Birendranath Banerjee has been researching on clinical genetics since 1999 and after finishing his education with a post-doctoral stint; he came back to India and started collaborating with clinicians to know various lacunae in Molecular Diagnostics in India. He has been funded for various projects in the last 5 years from the Government agencies and he has been correlating his techniques and methods which are developed and patented by him to offer as a DNA based Diagnostic tools for detecting various conditions.
The Start-Up Journey (2013-2015)
inDNA Life Sciences was incubated in Technology Business Incubator KIIT- TBI since 2013 and was recognized and supported by Department of Biotechnology (DBT) Govt of India, Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council (BIRAC), Technology Development Board (TDB), National Science and Technology Development Board (NSTDB). The company has developed DNA based diagnostics platform and has started offering its unique Diagnostics services in Bhubaneswar and Kolkata.
The Start-Up Journey (2016-2020)
inDNA is currently operating in the areas of Molecular Cytogenetics, Onco-Genetics, and Molecular Fertility &Pedia-Genetics. The company has successfully installed a one of its kind Next generation DNA sequencing platform which is a first among such Installation in Eastern India. The laboratory is now an NABL accredited laboratory in compliance to ISO 15189:2012 (Cert. No.: MC-2046) as per the recommended scope of services, becoming the first and the only accredited molecular genetic laboratory presently operating in Eastern part of the country. The laboratory has also successfully tied up or collaborated with the leading clinicians in these fields. The tests currently offered by inDNA have been adequately validated in its own laboratory facility, while making an effort to create a database for the mutations pertinent to the population of Indian origin.
inDNA is a DSIR Govt of India certified Company with active Research and Development wing as well as Training division. inDNA is involved in training and certificate program in the areas of DNA based Molecular Techniques and assays such as Cell Culture, Cancer Histopathology, Bone marrow profiling NGS Sequencing etc. The certificate programs are well designed to cater to industry requirements as well as skill enhancements.
inDNA Life Sciences has set up centres in North India with Delhi as a Base and expanded far East with Kolkata as a Base to Guwahati. It has currently more than 12 centres in 6 different states and aims to have PAN India presence.
The inhouse R&D division is involved in the process of Continuous innovation to cater as per the requirement of Critical illnesses such as Cancer , Fertility, Paediatrics, and wellness. In the last 5 years the company has added more than 200+ tests to its portfolio and each test is indigenously validated and customised to Detect, Diagnose and Treat a particular ailment or condition at the molecular level. Therefore , the mantra of inDNA is to look for solutions for life inDNA.
