THE IVF PI­O­NEERS

IVF India - - Unplugged -

Trivec­tor Sci­en­tific In­ter­na­tional (Pvt. Ltd.) - an ISO 9001:2008 cer­ti­fied com­pany - which is now in joint ven­ture with Ori­gio- A Cooper Sur­gi­cal Co.,USA, was launched in 1993 as a pro­pri­etor­ship or­ga­ni­za­tion in Mu­lund-an eastern sub­urb of Mum­bai (In­dia). Dilip Patil, CEO, a Bio­med­i­cal (Elec­tron­ics) En­gi­neer and his spouse Sangeeta (Di­rec­tor) (BSc) started this firm with a dream and vi­sion of cater­ing to all the needs un­der one roof for an ever de­vel­op­ing field of In­fer­til­ity Man­age­ment (pop­u­larly known as Test-tube Baby or IVF). From the first IVF baby of In­dia to stem cell re­search, Trivec­tor has been an in­te­gral part of this fast evolv­ing and ex­cit­ing field of Re­pro­duc­tive and Re­gen­er­a­tive Medicine.

The main pur­pose of Trivec­tor Sci­en­tific In­ter­na­tional at the time of in­cep­tion was to help the in­ter­ested doc­tors (ob­ste­tri­cians and Gyne­col­o­gists) to set up their own In­fer­til­ity Clin­ics. The idea was to pro­vide all ser­vices un­der one roof, so that the clients (doc­tors) do not have to con­tact dif­fer­ent sup­pli­ers for dif­fer­ent prod­ucts and ser­vices. The name TRIVEC­TOR is a combi- na­tion of two words TRI and VEC­TOR. TRI means 3 and VEC­TOR is a sci­en­tific term which means an ar­row with spe­cific di­rec­tion and mag­ni­tude (force). Hence TRiVEC­TOR means a com­bi­na­tion of 3 ar­rows to pro­vide a col­lec­tive force in a spe­cific di­rec­tion. It is in­ter­est­ing to note that this name was coined in a sec­ond class com­part­ment of a Mum­bai lo­cal train.

The three ar­rows (Tri-Vec­tor) sig­ni­fies: 1) Con­ve­nience, 2) Com­mit­ment and 3) Care to­wards the cus­tomers. For our clients who wish to start and run their In­fer­til­ity clin­ics the three vec­tors which we had in mind work in fol­low­ing ways.

1. Con­ve­nience: for cus­tomer of get­ting all the help from Trivec­tor (prod­ucts and ser­vices at one place, with­out both­er­ing to con­tact dif­fer­ent agen­cies)

2. Com­mit­ment: of Trivec­tor in pro­vid­ing in­no­va­tive qual­ity prod­ucts and ef­fi­cient ser­vices in the short­est pos­si­ble time

3. Care: taken by Trivec­tor in han­dling and main­tain­ing the crit­i­cal prod­ucts to be used with pa­tients. (Main­tain­ing the cold chain, de­liv­ery of prod­ucts as and when re­quired in most op­ti­mal con­di­tion). Trivec­tor which has re­cently signed a joint ven­ture agree­ment with Ori­gio, a Cooper Sur­gi­cal Com­pany (world’s largest fo­cused ART Com­pany) rep­re­sents re­puted and es­tab­lished com­pa­nies and brands from Europe, Amer­ica, Asia and Aus­tralia in this field. Trivec­tor has an an­nual turnover of US $5 Mil­lion (FY 12-13) and is the con­sis­tent mar­ket leader for all the prod­ucts of th­ese com­pa­nies in In­dia.
