Deputy Head,
Central Instrumentation Division
Vision – The division supports in-house operation and maintenance of various sophisticated scientific instruments, video-conferencing system and audio-visual systems. Central instrumentation facilities consist of Electron Microscopes (Transmission and Scanning), NMR 300 MHz (Bruker) and NMR 600MHz, Mass Spectrometer. The division has facilities for UV/IR Spectrophotometers, Ultra Centrifuges and Super Speed Refrigerated Centrifuges. The division attempts to develop simple instruments for biological research like a cell fusion apparatus.
