Wet Lab Facility

In order to complement the in silico biology work going on at the centre a well equipped wet lab facility had been set up recently. Our R&D division has a complete research facility for microbiology, molecular biology, phytochemistry and clinical studies which work together with multidisciplinary approach at various stages of research. A basic Molecular biology, Bio electronics and Microbiology lab has been set up and provides a training environment in which departmental members can acquire and use various techniques. Currently the centre is using the lab facility for snake venom detection bio-sensor development, snake venom characterization, desalination project and bio-active compound isolation and its validation. One of the reasons behind setting up a wet lab is to make non biology students and researchers acquainted with the wet lab and providing them hands on training in biological experiments.  As the lab is indulging into bio-sensor development an advanced Bioelectronics lab is also incorporated along with the wet labs.
