In 1990, it diversified into marketing medical and diagnostic equipment and instruments of Bekton Dickinson, US; Airsep Corporation, US; Coloplast, Denmark; and Terumo Corporation, Japan. Lyka Exports is the subsidiary of the company. The company offers a broad range of antibiotics used as life-savers and to treat minor infections.
