Papersens Pvt Ltd, is a spin off start-up from a completed Department of Biotechnology grant awarded to Dr. K.S. Prasad, the start- up was founded by Dr.K.S. Prasad and his doctoral student Ms. Sonia in the year 2019. The company is incorporated on 4 th July 2019 with Corporate Identification Number is (CIN) U33123KA2019PTC125899. The start-up is incubated at the Yenepoya Technology Incubator (YTI) and its support and advise with respect to regulatory aspects are one of the uniqueness to Papersens Pvt Ltd.

Here at Papersens, we are addressing affordable point-of-care testing platforms for need based clinically relevant biomarkers, and novel drug delivery routes that has been seldom look into with the help of our scientific strength and advise from the clinicians of Yenepoya Deemed to be University hospital.

Since the start up is a spin-off from academic research, we are trying to bridge and translate those ideas, where never had been come to limelight and ended up as simple PhD thesis or publications. At the moment, the start-up is working on the development of paper based microfluidic platforms for old age- related neurological issues, child and women health.
