The Silicon Review
Research infrastructures are resources, services, and facilities that are used by the research community to promote innovation and conduct research. They are well known for facilitating research efforts within national settings and in global collaborations across borders. Research infrastructures are incredibly needed for pursuing scientific knowledge in a world where science and research have become more complex and sophisticated, for which collaboration is the key. The role played by research in recent times shows that the demand for infrastructure is rapidly evolving and has become a part of a connected ecosystem. This has led to the creation of a unique resource for interdisciplinary analysis and advanced research of scientific problems. Globally there are various companies delivering excellent research infrastructure and services, but NextGen Life Sciences stands out from the rest. NextGen Life Sciences was established in 2014 to become a frontrunner in the distribution of innovative biological products and services for the Life science research and diagnostic market while also providing complete solutions in Instrumentation, Reagents, Next Generation Sequencing Services, Bioinformatics, and customized solutions to Scientists and Researchers. The company wants to deliver the right products of scientific needs in the minimum possible time at the doorstep to facilitate research findings to improve human health and the environment. The company is poised to become a one-stop solution to cater to the research needs of scientists in the Field of Molecular biology, Cell Biology, Immunology, Healthcare, Drug Development, and more. In order to cater to the untapped opportunities in the industry, Dr. Nagma Abbasi established NextGen Life Sciences with an aim to bridge the gap between the needs and pains of researchers of the life sciences/ biotech industry and assist the scientists in gaining insight into the recent innovations and technologies, assuring a sound knowledge of the subject matter. Henceforth, with its augmented spectrum of products and solutions, NextGen is empowering the mounting realm of complex analytical challenges. Being a scientist herself, Dr. Abbasi was aware of scientists’ pain points in the biotechnology, life sciences, and healthcare industry. Having this experience was beneficial for curating the services of NextGen and turning it into a successful establishment.
NextGen has reached this zenith of success through facing every challenge that came its way head-on. In the initial days of NextGen Life Sciences, Dr. Nagma had to wade through tough waters of uncertainties and manage capital investments, assembling a quality team, building a customer base, and forming good relationships. Never the one to fall behind, Dr. Nagma worked to transform hurdles into opportunities and plowed through to tap into the unbridled potential of the biotech industry. “Today, with the hard work and determination of my team and me, we deliver the best of services and solutions which are smart and futuristic, and NextGen Life Sciences Pvt. Ltd. has become the most preferred brand for clients,” states Dr. Nagma. The key achievement for NextGen has been consistent growth for the last six years in terms of revenue and profitability. The company has been successful in attaining customer trust in a short period by providing excellent services in the industry.
Among the list of notable obstacles that NextGen faced is, of course, the pandemic. The research institutes shut down during the lockdown, and the Life Science Research aspect of NextGen suffered its consequences. Dr. Nagma and her team, however, soon started working on new opportunities. They started working with clients recommended by the ICMR for Covid testing and VTM manufacturers. With most businesses temporarily shut down, their deliveries and payments got stuck. The team got personally involved, applying for e-pass and moving products themselves from airports to client sites. Even though they had a tough time recovering money from the market, they kept on assisting the clients to the best of their abilities. Belonging to the healthcare industry and being able to provide services in times of dire need helped them gain the confidence of their customers. They went above and beyond to help their customers as well, giving credit as required and delivering much-needed products within given timelines. NextGen’s devotion to its customers and its leader’s never-back-down approach helped it regain its foothold and move forward with its plan for the future. The company is currently looking forward to processing futuristic innovations in Biotechnology like Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) in clinical laboratories, NGS Data analysis, and interpretation of unknown genetic variants. With its presence in North India, it is planning to expand its network in West and South India as well. NextGen is enthusiastic about the new technology and its application-CRISPR. CRISPR technology is a simple yet powerful tool for editing genomes. NextGen Life Sciences is keen on transforming the modus operandi of research and the future need for scientific discoveries and innovations. “Our company’s mission is to discover, delineate, and deliver high-quality products and excellent services that enable millions of lives to live a healthy and better life,” says Dr. Nagma.
