Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) Achievements Posted: 04 December 2009; Category: Achievement While we have always maintained a strong focus on agriculture, science and technology, our cutting edge advances have really borne fruit in the agro-biotech sector. To date, UPM has filed the highest number of patents – 169 – among universities, the highest record for a Malaysian university. We have also commercialized 15 products so far, from which sales generated amounted to RM32 million. Among our notable research breakthroughs is the Fast Target White Spot Virus Detection Kit, which saved the shrimp industry from near collapse in the late 1990s. It was estimated that this Kit saved shrimp farmers about RM72 million in potential losses. ZAPPA, the rice seeds germination enhancer, and Vita-Grow, the growth and yield enhancer have, together, generated about RM23.7 million in sales. In making strides, UPM has quickened the pace of technology transfer to benefit local industries, thus relying less on importing expensive foreign technologies. A recent innovation – Recombinant Pneumonic Mannheimia Vaccine - was sold for RM4 million plus 25% equity to a spin-off company.
