CENTRAL RESEARCH LABORATORY
The Facility also helps in knowledge sharing by constant interaction with all the Departments of the Vision Research Foundation, thereby increasing efficiency in research progressively.
ACID STORAGE ROOM
This facility is made to store various corrosive chemicals like Acids, organic solvents.
The fume hood in this acid storage room helps in evacuating the pungent and harmful fumes formed when using such chemicals
The BLUE STAR cold room facility maintains 4° C
This is used for the storage of Biological samples like culture plates, assay kits and to perform protein purification with equipments that are used for long time.
The cold room is also used to keep Ultracentrifuge Rotors for which the pre cooling is required.
The cold room is maintained clean and different samples are preserved by wrapping them in aluminium foil or into carton boxes.
The key features of the Facility:
Different sophisticated instruments like BD FACS CALIBUR, ZEISS AXIO OBSERVER FLUORESCENT MICROSCOPE, BIORAD BIOLOGIC DUO FLOW CHROMATOGRAPHIC SYSTEM, THERMOSCIENIFIC CONTROLLED RATE FREEZER, BECKMAN COULTER DU 800 SPECTROPHOMETER, BECKMAN COULTER XL-80 ULTRACENTRIFUGE, AGILENT 2100 BIOANALYSER are available to carry out high quality research.
Focus of the Facility is to cater the needs of the Research and Clinical Scientists in their research and diagnostic application.
Easy accessibility of state of art instruments through on line booking and trained staff.
Constantly upgrading the facility with the addition of new instruments and maintenance of the existing instruments facilitates meeting timelines of different scientists and healthcare personnel.
