Sisco Research Laboratories
Specializes in pure chemicals
Sisco Research Laboratories (SRL) is a manufacturer and supplier of highly pure specialty chemicals for the biotechnology and research industry in India.  The company increased its revenue from 5.3 crore in 2009-10 to 15 crore in 2010-11. This significant rise in the revenue is mainly attributed to the addition of several high value products of special research needs, such as nanotechnology powders and carbon nanotubes. Furthermore, it has tied up with five leading specialty chemical manufacturers from Europe and the US and also introduced another arm to the company. As of last year, around 70 percent of Sisco’s revenue was obtained from the public sector, mainly the ICMR R&D institutes and the remaining 30 percent was contributed by the private pharma sector. Last year, the company also entered the nanotechnology field by producing carbon nanotubes and nanobiochemicals, the only company in India to attain such a feat.
