In a country where the youth is its biggest strength, National Technology Week 2023 celebrated the innovative minds of India with a primary focus on Atal Innovation Mission, showcasing groundbreaking innovations across different sectors. The event was inaugurated by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, who praised the theme ‘School to Startups - igniting young minds to innovate’ and emphasized on the importance of knowledge and creating a strong foundation for the future generations. 

The 4-day long event concluded with the announcement of the National Technology Awards 2023, recognizing the best of startups and incubation centers in the country. Let's take a look at the list of winners in different categories.


This award is given to an industrial concern which has successfully developed & commercialized an indigenous technology. In case, the technology developer / provider and the company commercializing the technology are two different organizations, each is eligible for award of Rs.25 Lakh and a trophy.

  • M/s MyLab Discovery Solutions Private Limited, Maharashtra

The company has successfully indigenised CNATSpert ID TripleH Detection Kit which offers all in one qualitative multiplex Real Time PCR test for simultaneous detection and discrimination of HIV, HBV, and HCV in donated blood in a single tube format. 

Mylab’s patented NATSpert ID TripleH Detection Kit offers all- in- one qualitative multiplex Real-Time PCR test for simultaneous detection and discrimination of transfusion-transmitted infections (TTIs) such as HIV, HBV and HCV in donated blood. In India, with high prevalence rate of HIV, HBV, and HCV, blood safety is a big challenge. Blood safety relies deeply on the accurate screening of blood for transmissible infections (TTIs). Every year thousands of people in India acquire deadly infections because of lack of appropriate preventive testing.

The Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAT) is considered the gold standard in blood safety screening and significantly reduces TTIs related to Hepatitis B and C and HIV. Some viruses, such as hepatitis B, have a longer incubation period of 40 to 50 days. The serology tests fail to detect the presence whereas NAT will find out such presence. NATSpert, the only made in India approved NAT test, is highly sensitive and is specific real time PCR technology for testing of individual donors and blood products. It can identify and detect multiple analytes in a single test, thus improving workflow turnaround time and sensitivity compared to the currently available commercial NAT kits. It is a high quality, affordable NAT test compare to existing commercially available tests. NATSpert can help blood banks to supply non-infected blood, avoid litigations that come their way due to infected blood stocks and improve their quality standards.
