Department of Pharmaceutics
We are having three well equiped pharmaceutics labs I, II &III with all the necessary chemicals and raw materials. Pharmaceutics deals with all facts of the process of turning a new chemical entity (NCE) into a medication that can be used safely and effectively by patients in the community. Department focus on designing and development of conventional dosage forms such as tablet, capsule, syrup, emulsion, suspension and novel drug delivery systems like sustained release, controlled, transdermal, ocular, mucoadhesive and targeted drug delivery systems. The M.Pharma program in Pharmaceutics was initiated in the year 2007. Pharmaceutics Department has all modern as well as conventional instrument like Six basket Dissolution apparatus, Disintegration apparatus, Digital balance, Standard coating pan, Hot air Oven, Mechanical Stirrer with propeller , Homogenizer, Vacuum Pump, Magnetic stirrer with hot plate Pfizer, Monsanto hardness tester, Friability test apparatus, Aseptic cabinet, Hot plate, Heating mantle.
Department of Pharmachemistry
We are having two well equiped pharmaceutical chemistry labs I &II & one pharmaceutical analysis lab with all the necessary chemicals and raw materials.Pharmaceutical chemistry is a discipline at the intersection of chemistry and pharmacology involved in with design, synthesis and developing drug candidates. Medicinal chemistry involves the identification, synthesis and development of new chemical entities suitable for therapeutic use. Our Pharmachemistry departmental contributes to teaching in the areas of organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, analytical chemistry and drug discovery. Pharmachemistry Department is well equipped with Rotatory evaporator, Muffle furnace, Vacuum oven, Digital Melting point apparatus, Digital balance, Fuming chamber, Mechanical and magnetic stirrer, Refractometer, Polarimeter, Suction pumps The focus of the department is the synthesis and screening of various heterocyclic compounds for their pharmacological activities.
Department of Pharmacognosy
Pharmacognosy is the study of medicinal drugs derived from plants or other natural sources.Pharmacognosy is study of the physical, chemical, biochemical and biological properties of drugs, drug substances or potential drugs or drug substances of natural origin as well as the search for new drugs from natural sources. It is also defined as the study of crude drugs .The department imparts profound knowledge of traditional systems of medicines and studies safety, efficacy and biological activity of herbal plants and products. The area of research involves identification and investigation of medicinal plants for their phytochemical, pharmacological and microbiological activities. Pharmacognosy department is equipped with BOD Incubator, Projection microscope, Digital balance, Zone reader, Moisture balance, Micro centrifuge, TLC chamber and sprayer, Sterility testing unit, Soxlet & Clavenger Extractor and a herbal museum with collection of more than 200 crude drugs.
Department of Pharmacology
Pharmacology is the branch of biology concerned with the study of drug action, where a drug can be broadly defined as any man-made, natural, or endogenous (from within body) molecule which exerts a biochemical or physiological effect on the cell, tissue, organ, or organism. The field encompasses drug composition and properties, synthesis and drug design, molecular and cellular mechanisms, organ/systems mechanisms, signal transduction/cellular communication, molecular diagnostics, interactions, toxicology, chemical biology, therapy, and medical applications and antipathogenic capabilities.
The following equipments like Rota Rod, Organ Bath, Sherrington’s Kymograph Machine, Histamine chamber, Spirometer, Actophotometer Haemocytometer, Haemoglobinometer, Analgesiometer, Convulsometer, Digital sugar testing device, Pole climbing apparatus, Sphygmomanometer etc are available in the Department. This department is involved in screening of natural and synthetic drugs for their pharmacological activities usling in vitro and in vivo models involving preclinical and toxicological studies. Knowledge on experimental skill is imparted to students through computer aided visuals.
Department of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology
Pharmaceutical Biotechnology is an increasingly important area of biotechnology contributing to design, development and delivery of bio Pharmaceuticals new therapeutic drugs & diagnostic agents, such as antibiotics, viral nucleic acids and therapeutic proteins. In the next century, the major driving force for biotechnology will be the strategic use of genomic information. Pharmaceutical biotechnology department is equipped with BOD apparatus, laminar air flow, Tissue culture station, Orbital incubator, electrophoresis, Micropipette, Vortex, Incubator water bath, colorimeter, centrifuge. The department focuses on antimicrobial studies for synthetic and natural products. Therapeutic efficacy of antimicrobial agents is studied through serum antibacterial assays and therapeutic drug monitoring.
