Department of Environmental Biotechnology

Facilities

Laboratories

All the laboratories are equipped with several imported equipment like Gas chromatograph Mass Spectrophotometer (GC-MS), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS), Environmental shaker, Fermentor, Rotary Vacuum Evaporator, Thermal cycler, Refrigerator centrifuge, UV- VIS double Beam Spectrophotometer, Millipore Distillation Unit, Water purification system, Two Dimensional Electrophoresis Unit, Deep Freezer (-85C and -20C), BOD Incubator, Laminar air flow, Environmental chamber, Nikon Microscope with Micro photographic facilities, Basic facilities for GIS LAB, Global positioning System(GPS). Common lab facilities were provided for M.Sc., students to conduct all the Molecular and Microbiological related practical course. Cell culture lab facility (UGC-Innovative programme sponsored) was established to explore the molecular toxicity through cell line studies

Library and Informatics Lab

To update the current knowledge in the subject, the students were motivated to access the departmental library facility (500 books and few Journals) and informatics lab. The faculty members are very keen in purchasing updated version of subject books in the field of Environmental Biotechnology, Molecular Genetics Microbiology, Environmental chemistry, toxicology, GIS for remote sensing. DST –FIST sponsored Informatics lab was established in the department with many softwares and search engines.
