Company Description
Dr. S.K. Dash founded UAS Laboratories, a leading probiotic company, in 1979. The company manufactures and markets probiotics with the super strain DDS-1 and antioxidants in the United States, Canada and many other countries worldwide. UAS offers finished products, raw materials, private labeling and custom manufacturing.

Dash became interested in probiotics while working as the director of the Food and Drug Administration for South Dakota from 1973-1979. He found that studies showed probiotics were 97 percent effective in treating E. coli infections in pigs, an efficacy rate equal to the antibiotics then being used. Building on this research, he started his own company and began to develop probiotics for human use. Dash also introduced quality control standards to the industry and became the chairman of the National Probiotics Products Committee because of his expertise in probiotics and concerns about the honesty in labeling and quality control.

Because of its mission the company conducts seminars and workshops for consumers and health food stores. UAS also conducts research, provides technical support, technical writing and consulting.
