Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Parasitology (DMIP) owns one undergraduate and four post graduate laboratories. The Undergraduate laboratory mainly supports undergraduate student’s practical demonstration. There are four post graduate laboratories, namely, Molecular lab, Cell & Tissue culture lab, Microbiology lab and Parasitology lab. Moreover, there is a core laboratory commonly used by all departments in the the college. The core lab is where the real-time PCR is placed.
Some of the major equipment’s in these laboratories include Class I &II Bio safety cabinets, Fume hoods, MX3000P real-time PCR, 3500XL genetic analyzer, Shaking incubator 3000, Polaroid MP-4 land camera, Electrolyte analyzer, Universal 320R centrifuge, Deep Freezer (-80), 2470 Automatic gamma counter, Hot plate stirrer, Vortex mixer, Laboratory carts stainless steel, Low temperature incubator, Binocular phase contrast microscope, Ultrasonic homogenizer with temperature control, Liquid nitrogen Dewar, LOCATOR8 with Trolley, Eppendrof variable speed micro centrifuge (5417c), Pneumatic-lift clean chairs and Centrifuge bench, Micro Tissue Grinder W/Accessories, Harvard trip balance, High Current DC-power Supply, Ultra violet-visible scanning spectrophotometers, Dry ice machine, hybridization incubator(Grant), pH meter, Membrane-vacuum pump, Analytical Balance, Top Loading Balance, Ice maker , Vertical Cell, Ultraviolet fluorescent table and Pneumatic-lift clean chairs, MFMBRAN-VAKUUM PUMPE, Nap CO2 incubator, ELISA reader, Inverted microscope, Microplate washers and Water bath with accessories.
Therefore, plasma biomarker evaluation, RNA isolation from the peripheral blood leukocyte buffy coat and DNA isolation from fecal samples will be done in these laboratories.
