New facility for Aurolab

Madurai, Sept. 30 (PTI): Aravind Eye Hospital's Aurolab which produces Intra Ocular lens(IOL) and other surgical instruments, would have a new manufacturing
facility in 1,10,000 sq ft area at Veerapanchan near here.

The new facility of Aurolab would be conformed to the international standards set by United States Food and Drug Administration.

It would help Aurolab increase its production capacity by five times, G Srinivasan, President and Dr P Balakrishnan, Managing Director, told reporters here
on Saturday.

Aurolab which had received ISO 1999 and CE certification for its high-quality products, would continue to provide its products to eye care institutions
at cheaper rates, they said.

About 60 per cent of its IOL produced was used by eye care hospitals across the world.

It was also keen to introduce new technology in the manufacturing process while ensuring quality products.

The new facility would bring the manufacturing of various products under one roof and help faster growth of the organisation.
