Ross Lifescience (RLS) established in 2008, specializes in development and evaluation of products, utilized in pest management and household insecticides.
Armed with conviction, passion and confidence, the business grew exponentially, and in 2010, the team shifted into a larger premise in Wakad, on the outskirts of Pune. The company continued to grow, and invested further in the business. Accreditations such as the ISO certification (9001-2008) for the laboratory, added credibility.
New verticals got added on, resulting in RLS being bestowed the ISBA Entrepreneurship Excellence award for green technologies. Soon, samples for analysis and evaluation of household products started coming in from other countries too.
In 2011, the laboratory was recognised by DSIR. Subsequently the ISO 17025 certification gave the business an added boost, thus marking an entry into the Crop Protection field. 2010 onwards, ROSS has been posting a healthy growth rate of 40% year on year.
By February 2014, both, the business as well as number of employees had grown substantially, initiating a move into a brand new 25000 square feet office space in the Bhosari Industrial area, housing sophisticated instruments like HPLC – MS and GC-MS, besides a large entomology and insect rearing facility. Soon, a sophisticated eco-toxicity facility for screening of impact of pesticides on aquatic and terrestrial beneficial organism was added on.
In 2015 the facility was approved by CIB&RC. RLS is associated with renowned MNCs in the field of pest management, and enjoys tremendous levels of credibility with them. In 2018, RLS procured the prestigious GLP certification, making it one of the rare recipients amongst Indian laboratories. Today, RLS is a specialized organization, concentrating on analysis of Integrated Pest Management products with special emphasis on Chemistry and Eco-toxicity.
An organization is as strong as its people. RLS encourages the staff to pursue their post-grad and doctoral programs, by lending them ample flexibility, to enable them to conduct their research in-house itself.
With over 60 employees and the largest number of PhDs at one location in the household insecticide sector, the main laboratory in Pune, and an office in Mumbai, RLS is the first choice in research for the biggest names in the world.
