J. Mitra & Co. Pvt Ltd

India's First Company to Get Drug Manufacturing License for Dengue NS1 Antigen Test

Incorporated in 1969,the creation of the diagnostics division of J. Mitra & Co. Ltd is intimately linked with life. It is the pioneer in the production and marketing of medical diagnostic kits in India.

Presently,the tests which are available to detect the dengue disease, are based on the detection of specific antibodies of dengue virus. The limitation is that these antibodies are produced several days after,the first clinical signs/symptoms appear. Now,with the introduction of specific detection of dengue virus using NS1 antigen,the virus can be detected on DAY 1 itself. Thus saving valuable time of the patient.

There is currently no treatment avaliable for dengue.The key is early detection and recognition and understanding of the clinical problems during the different phases of the disease
Recognising the need for saving lives,J.Mitra & Co. Pvt Ltd in collaboration with ICGEB,New Delhi,has introduced rapid and Elisa test for diagnosing Dengue virus.
