Department of Environmental Biotechnology



The Department has seven different laboratories well equipped with several imported equipments like Gas Chromatograph with Mass Spectrophotometer (GC-MS), High Performance Liquid Chromatograph (HPLC), Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS), , 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 (-85oC and -20oC), BOD Incubator, Laminar air flow cabinet, Nikon Microscope with Micro photographic facilities, Basic facilities for GIS Lab, Global positioning System (GPS). Common lab facilities are provided for M.Sc., students to conduct all the Molecular and Microbiological related practical courses. 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 knowledge in the subject, the students are motivated to access the Departmental Library facility (684 books) and Informatics lab. The Library has 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 software’s and search engines.
