Re: Tissue culture labs in India.

The following is a list of commercial tissue culture labs in India compiled
from various sources and contacts.  By 'commercial' I mean those that
explicitly undertake commercial activities such as contract propagation and
technology transfer.  There are many more labs in Universities, Research
Institutes etc. that are not listed here.  I should say that I have not
personally contacted all the labs and I think that some are probably no
longer extant.  Some may never have been more than a fond idea in someones
mind.  Perhaps the list should properly be headed 'labs and rumours of labs
in India'.  I am sure that the list is not definitive and that there are
more out there.  I should be very grateful if you would inform me if you
know of or come across any labs that are not included on the list.

The size of the labs varies from those with a potential output of less than
100,000 plants per year to one, non-automated lab, with a potential output
of 30 million plants per year.  The range of crops worked on is also very
wide although some labs are essentially one crop labs.  Banana is the major
crop produced for the domestic market but sugarcane is also seen as having
great potential.  A variety of spice crops is micropropagated and various
floriculture crops are also offered domestically with the rapid
developments in that sector.  The use of micropropagated forestry crops is
still largely experimental.  A range of mainly foliage ornamental crops is
exported worldwide.

You can do what you like with the list but I should appreciate your
acknowledging the source if you publish it anywhere.  I wish to acknowledge
Dr R Dore Swamy, Chief Executive, Whitefield Agrotech, Bangalore for
sharing with me his own list of companies.
