Scientists of the National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI) launched a new innovative technology for rapidly detecting clinical and sub-clinical mastitis in dairy animals. The technology, based on molecular biology techniques, will help detect udder disease at an early stage and take necessary remedial measures to prevent its spread.

Dr MS Chauhan, Director of the National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI), launched a new technology developed jointly by the NDRI and the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT-Delhi). The technology, which helps to improve the productivity of dairy farms, is the result of a collaborative research project between the two institutes. Dr Naresh Kumar of NDRI and Dr Ravikrishnan Elangovan of IIT-Delhi led the research team responsible for developing the technology. At the launch event, Dr Chauhan praised the team’s work and noted that the new technology would positively impact the dairy industry in India. He also thanked the team members for their hard work and dedication. This innovative technology will help improve the productivity of dairy farms across India.

“It is a non-invasive technology wherein disease diagnosis of an animal is done through milk which is rapid and more sensitive than the existing technology,” said the Director while launching it during an industry meet organised by the NDRI on its premises.

Dr Chauhan said mastitis was a disease of the udder. Statistics indicate that 30-35 per cent of dairy animals are suffering from clinical and sub-clinical mastitis in India, which causes enormous loss to the dairy industry. He said that mastitis was an inflammation of the mammary gland and udder tissues caused by bacterial infection. The disease impairs milk production and quality and causes discomfort to the animal. Dr Chauhan said that milking machines, improper management practices, unhygienic conditions and poor nutrition were factors responsible for causing mastitis. He said that prompt diagnosis and treatment of the disease were necessary to prevent its spread among animals. Treatment involved a course of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs, he added.

In a meeting with scientists, industry personnel, entrepreneurs and start-ups, Dr Chauhan said that the test was cost-effective and had been validated. He went on to say that over the past 12 years, the NDRI has developed 156 technologies. Of them, 85 had been commercialised by dairy industries, animal feed manufacturers, and entrepreneurs. The Director said the primary purpose of this meeting was to reduce the gap between research institutes and industries. He said that such meetings provided an opportunity for enterprises to learn about NDRI’s latest research findings and know about various processes that could help them improve the quality and quantity of their products. It also provided an opportunity for NDRI scientists to get first-hand information about problems being faced by industries and design research programmes accordingly. In this way, both research institutes and industries can work together for mutual benefit and growth.

On this occasion, 15-NDRI supported start-ups and entrepreneurs were also felicitated and successfully initiated their business by adopting NDRI developed technologies. Dr Dheer Singh said NDRI had been quite successful in commercialising its technologies. Even during the pandemic period, NDRI could commercialise 24 technologies developed at the Institute. He informed that these commercialised technologies are directly related to societal needs and would go a long way in solving real-life problems. He congratulated all the scientists of NDRI for their contribution to taking the Institute to new heights. The Director also said that it is due to the combined efforts of all employees that the Institute has been able to get recognition at the international level.

He further said impact analysis of some NDRI technologies, such as milk adulteration detection kit and anionic mineral mixtures, was also done. The results were very encouraging, which had been noticed by the policymakers.

The meet was attended by scientists, technologists, and industry representatives from all over the world. During the meet, NDRI showcased its technologies related to milk quality, milk safety, health foods, fortified milk products, dairy equipment, animal nutrition, etc. The participants were highly impressed with the quality of NDRI’s technologies. They expressed interest in working with the Institute in the future. This meet provided an excellent opportunity for NDRI to showcase its capabilities and establish itself as a leading player in the global dairy industry.
