Biochemistry Lab

Biochemistry is a branch of science which examines the chemical processes within living organism. It is a laboratory based science which brings together biology and chemistry. It covers a range of scientific disciplines including genetics, microbiology, forensics, plant science and medicine. This also focuses on the processes happening at molecular level.

In Biochemistry laboratory biochemist studies the chemical processes, by examining the chemistry of reaction catalyzed by enzymes. Biochemistry lab consists of all basic components of science research labs facilitated with strong supply of electricity. The laboratory utilizes the techniques of molecular biology as well, to help with biochemical research. It is also equipped with spectrophotometer which is frequently necessary to measure the concentration of protein or enzyme reactions. It has more specialized equipments like chromatography and electrophoresis which is used in the separation of molecules. These facilities would help the students to take lab classes in these areas and could also conduct research in a biochemistry lab which will help them in mastering these skills.

By these advanced technologies, we are focusing to provide training, to understand the molecular basis of biological activities and disease diagnosis. Along with pharmacological studies which provides a foundation for the formulation of drug used in the treatment of diseases.
