RSBC has been started in India by a group of qualified scientists who are aware of the recent trends in biotech industry particularly in the area of Medicinal and Aromatic Plant and natural product chemistry research. As the new drugs in pharmaceutical industry have dried up, the pharmaceutical industry is showing great interest in research on medicinal plants and traditional system of medicine. Keeping in view that there are approximately 119 drugs already obtained from 90 plant species, programs have been specially evolved by well known pharmaceutical companies around important and lesser known medicinal plants to develop new molecules, build chemistry around such molecules using modern medicinal chemistry tools to develop new drugs or their formulations and products to treat both serious and common ailments.
On the other hand regulatory authorities are laying stringent laws to clearly mention on the product the source of plants used laws to clearly mention on the product the source of plants used, whether collected from wild or from captive cultivation and its purity / impurity profiles? This information, as we all know, ensures uniformity and assurance in terms of quality of products made and used and sustained utilization of natural products.
RSBC has contacts with scientists working on medicinal chemistry of herbal drugs, isolation of molecules and synthesis of their scaffolds and their study for their structure activity relationship. Such projects can be sponsored to the relevant institutions and monitored using our past experience. Pharmaceutical industry generally does not have access to the large scale land mass
to cultivate the assured varieties of their interest for assured supply of raw material that has uniformity and stability in terms of its chemical profile.
Aromatic plants on the other hand are used in flavor and fragrance industry. The assured supply of the natural oils is gaining importance for high end food, beverages, fragrances, flavors and aromatherapy. Important molecules have been recently isolated that show promise for commercial use.
RSBC has contacts with the farmers having large acreage of land in different agro-climatic regions for contract farming and buy back arrangement. Interested parties can get their plantation (medicinal, aromatic or nutraceutical) cultivated for assured supply of the raw material.
RSBC is aware of Intellectual property management, patent search, filing, portfolio management and identifying space for research that generates IP. The scientists in RSBC have sufficient experience in patent filing and protecting its genuine claims.
RSBC believes in right to privacy and therefore all care shall be taken to maintain the confidentiality under duly signed secrecy agreements. The CEO has already worked with top most pharmaceutical companies of the world and values their R&D efforts for mutual financial and time benefit. Therefore RSBC has sufficient experience to profitably take forward any handholding.
