Pharmaceutical Laboratories help in training the students in the manufacturing and formulation of drugs. Students are well trained in the method of formulating drugs in different dosage forms like, Tablets, Capsules, Parenterals, Ointments creams, Eye drops, syrups, etc.

Various practical aspects of Pharmaceutics like Physical Pharmacy, Unit operation, Dispensing Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Technology, Biopharmaceutics, Community Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Biotechnology etc are taught to the students.

Drug interaction, stability, Shelf-life studies are carried out. Different aspects of filling, packing, sealing, labelling is studied by the students. Cosmetology plays a major role in the present society. Our students are well trained in the manufacturing of cosmetics like Vanishing Creams, Cold Cream, Lotion, Liniment, Hair Dye, Lipstick, Perfume, Shampoo etc. Microbiological screening, testing and anti-microbial activities are carried out in the Pharmaceutical Biotechnology Laboratory.

The research interest of the Department is carrying out in Pharmacokinetics and novel drug delivery system studies.

The machine room is well equipped with machines generally encountered in Pharmaceutical Industry:

  • Rotary Tablet Punch Machine (Kambert)
  • Capsule Filling Machine
  • Bottle Filling and Sealing Machine
  • Coating Pan
  • Mechanical Sieve Shaker
  • Ointment Filling and Sealing Machine
  • Tincture Press
  • Ampoule Filling and Sealing Machine
  • Ampoule Clarity Test Apparatus
  • Ball Mill
  • Tray Dryer
  • Tablet Counter

Pharmacology Laboratories:

  • Pharmacology Laboratory -I
  • Pharmacology Laboratory -II
  • Human Anatomy and Physiology Laboratory
  • Research Laboratory

Pharmacology department trains the students in Anatomy & Patho physiology, Pharmacology & Toxicology. Students are given facilities to understand different system of Human Anatomy & their function & Pathology with tools like, Models, Charts, Permanent Slides, Bones, Skelton etc. After completely well versed with the subject Human Anatomy & Patho physiology students start to learn and make use of Pharmacological laboratories. Here students learn about the General pharmacology, drug dose, use, Mechanism of drugs and action of drugs, screening of drugs etc.

Software for the basic demonstration of Pharmacological experiments are also available.

Pharmaceutical Chemistry Laboratories:

  • Pharmaceutical Chemistry Laboratory I (Organic Chemistry Lab)
  • Pharmaceutical Chemistry Laboratory II (Medicinal Chemistry Lab)
  • Pharmaceutical Chemistry Laboratory III (Inorganic/Biochemistry Lab)
  • Pharmaceutical Analysis Laboratory
  • Central Instrumentation Laboratory

Pharmaceutical Chemistry Laboratories are meant for synthesis, purification, extraction, identification and quantification tests of organic, inorganic, herbs & medicinal compounds. It also includes various analytical techniques like titration, gravimetric and volumetric analysis and assay of compounds.

Pharmacognosy Laboratories:

  • Pharmacognosy Laboratory I
  • Pharmacognosy Laboratory II
  • Museum

Pharmacognosy Laboratories are well positioned for the proper entry of light which is the essential requirement for the microscopical studies. The labs are well equipped and suitable for various Pharmacognostical studies. We provide facilities for the students to acquire skills in learning morphological and microscopical characters of natural drugs using Compound Microscope, Dissection Microscope & Projection Microscope.

Students are trained in the various stages of natural drug research like different types of extraction, separation of groups of compounds, purification and identification of individual compounds and the recharacterization. Sophisticated instruments are used for the Chromatographic and standard Spectroscopic techniques.

The major research interest of the department has been in the area of traditional Health care system with a view of utilization of traditional and folklore remedies into the provision of primary health care system. Standardization of herbal drugs which is the major task in the present scenario is also carried out by the students in this department as their project work for the qualitative & quantitative evaluation of Phytomedicine.

Further research interest is in the Biotechnological preparation of plant tissue culture of medicinal plants. Students are provided with various tools like, crude drugs, charts, slides etc. to assist them in their learning process.
