Nano biotechnology laboratory.
The nanobiotechnology laboratory is equipped with facilities like electrophoresis systems, class II biosafety cabinet, high speed refrigerated centrifuge, incubator
shaker with refrigeration facility, phase contrast microscope with photographic attachments and gel documentation system. This facility aims to explore biological nano materials and 'green' chemistry methods towards nanoparticle synthesis for specific applications.
Nano chemistry laboratory.
Nanochemistry laboratory is equipped with all basic facilities for the synthesis of various hybrid nanomaterials for specific applications, adopting chemical methods. Various facilities such as fume hoods, millipore water purification unit, buchi rotary evaporator, electronic balance, hot air oven, homogenizer, ultrasonicator, pH meter, water bath, magnetic stirrers etc. are available in the nanochemistry laboratory.
Fuel cell research.
Research on air breathing polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) to optimise water and thermal management with electrode fabrication facility.
Electrospinning facility .
Indigenous electrospinning facility with flat plate and
rotary drum collectors which can produce nanofibres from
various organic and inorganic materials.
