LABORATORIES

16 laboratories including two modern research laboratories for PG have been developed in the institute. We believe the optimum utilization of laboratory facilities is under the supervision of our faculties, the pass outs will have an edge for immediate employment.

 

Sophisticated instrument laboratory

Technocrats Institute of Technology-Pharmacy Education & Research houses state- of- art sophisticated analytical instruments like UV-VIS Spectrophotometer, HPLC, Probe Sonicator, Lyophilizer, Phase contrast microscope. Brookfield Viscometer, Particle size analyzer, zeta sizer. The instrument lab provides analytical support and intellectual input to both in-house and externally funded R&D Projects of the institute.
