pg and research Department of Biotechnology
Facilities & Services

The Department has excellent facilities for teaching and research in Modern Biology and Biotechnology, namely, Animal Cell Culture, Plan Tissue Culture, Fermentation technology, Microbiology, Immunology, Environmental Biotechnology, Bioinformatics and Genetic Engineering.

The Fermentation Facility of the Department has a state-of-the-art facility for Bioreactors. It is equipped with practically the entire range of Bioreactors such as Stirred-Tank / Photo-Bioreactor / Air-lift / Fluidized Bed Reactors. Besides, the faculty engage actively in research and are in process of equipping the Laboratory further through research grants. Over the past couple of years, nearly 75 lakh of rupees have been obtained as grant from DST-SERB, DST, UGC and TNSCST. The laboratory is virtually open on all days through 24 hours a day to enable full-fledged research activities. That's why, the facility is considered most opportunistic by Post Graduate students. The Department has been compartmentalized to provide utmost importance to every branch of this vast science. The deparment holds a good collection of various sophasticated and world class equipments which include

  • Deep freezer (-20°C, Vest frost – Denmark)
  • Refrigerated centrifuge (Plastocraft – India)
