Our Labs and Facilities

Eight laboratories of Biosystems occupy a space of approximately 5,000 square feet and are equipped to carry out most investigations.
A walk-in clean room, walk-in incubation room, walk-in refrigeration room, an animal house, a greenhouse, a darkroom for photography, a library and a computer room are ancillary facilities.

We are equipped to carry out most investigations in the areas of biological and chemical sciences, including bacteriology, biochemistry, botany, chemistry, entomology, genetics, immunology, industrial hygiene, microbiology, molecular biology, mycology, toxicology, virology and zoology.

Major instrumentation includes laminar biological and chemical safety cabinets, walk-in and bench-top incubators, autoclaves, ambient and refrigerated centrifuges, light phase contrast and inverted microscopes, atomic absorption (AA) furnace, gas chromatography (GC) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) columns and associated detection equipment, homogenizers, refrigerators, freezers, liquid nitrogen freezers, ovens, spectrophotometers (AA, Vis, UV, IR, MS), balances, ion-specific cum-pH meters, water baths, automatic glassware washers, soil, air and water samplers. Equipment and instrumentation are also available to provide high quality de-ionized and high purity, sterile, pyrogen-free distilled water on a continuous basis.


Animal House

At present, an animal house (500 sq ft floor space) with heating and air-conditioning in the laboratory complex of Biosystems houses the current population of small laboratory animals. Additional stainless steel cages and room to house and multiply experimental animal populations are available as a particular project may require


A 3,000 square foot greenhouse with automated lighting, heating, humidity and watering systems is available in close proximity to the site. Two environmental chambers with temperature, humidity and light controls are also available on siteā€¦

Pilot Plant

A 400-liter fermenter with automated process controls is available for contract fermentation of bacteria, fungi and preparation of mammalian cells. Usually, a 10-12 week notice is needed to reserve a production run. In addition, two bench-type fermenters (5-liter and 22-liter) with process controls are also available in our laboratories
