DEPARTMENT OF PHARMACEUTICS

Mr. Surendra Tripathi  
HOD, Department of Pharmaceutics

Pharmaceutics is a branch of pharmacy that involves designing, formulation and presenting a therapeutically useful chemical entity in a most appropriate drug delivery system such as tablets, capsules, syrups, etc. Pharmaceutics department has five different labs Pharmaceutics I, Pharmaceutics II, Pharmaceutics III, Pharmaceutical Microbiology and Biotechnology and machine room, an Aseptic (Area) Room and two sophisticated Pharmaceutics labs for M. Pharm. All the laboratories are well equipped with tablet punching machine, spray dryer, capsule filling machine , sieve shaker and dissolution rate apparatus, etc. The exposure know-how of such instruments at academics level is helpful to train the students with sophisticated equipments at the industrial scale.

The various laboratories are :

  • Pharmaceutics I
  • Pharmaceutics II
  • Pharmaceutics III
  • Machine Room
  • Pharmaceutical Microbiology & Biotechnology Laboratory

The Department promotes the teaching and research of subjects thereby contributes to the health of citizens. The Department has total 5 laboratories including machine room and pharmaceutical microbiology & biotechnology lab.

Pharmaceutics Laboratory I
Pharmaceutics Laboratory I is especially meant for carrying out routine practicals of Pharmaceutics Unit Operation & Pharmaceutical Engineering subject. It is well-furnished & is equipped with various flow meters and manometers useful for providing training for measurement of fluid flow including Orifice meter, Venturi meter, Rota meter, U tube manometer, Ejector pump, Vacuum pump & various glasswares. It is also equipped with drawing instruments for teaching a subject of pharmaceutical engineering drawing.

Pharmaceutics Laboratory II
Pharmaceutics Laboratory II is used for the routine practicals of subjects Physical pharmacy, Physical Pharmaceutics & Dispensing Pharmacy. It is well furnished & gratify to the practical requirements of the subjects. It is equipped with all the necessary instruments like Dissolution rate apparatus, Disintegration test apparatus, Bulk density apparatus, Melting Point Apparatus, Potentiometer, Conductivity meter, pH meter, Electric water bath, Mechanical stirrers, Magnetic Stirrers, Homogenizers, Hot plates, Heating Mantles, Distillation Assembly, Hot Air Oven.

Pharmaceutics Laboratory III
This laboratory is used for subjects like Pharmaceutical Technology & Dosage Form Design & is equipped with various modern instruments to cater the extensional aspects & the recent advances of the core subjects of pharmacy. Among many instruments, it has USP Dissolution Test Apparatus (Fully Automatic 6 Bowl) Shimadzu UV Double Beam Spectrophotometer, Tablet Punching Machine Humidity Controlled Oven and many more.

Machine Room
The Machine room is well furnished with sophisticated instruments as per AICTE & PCI norms like Tablet Punching Machine, Capsule Filling Machine, Ampoule Washing, Ampoule Filling & Sealing Machine, and more. These instruments impart practical training for preparation of various pharmaceutical dosage forms like NDDS, Tablets, Capsule, Ointments, Parenteral, Liquid orals and Packaging Science.

Pharmaceutical Microbiology & Biotechnology Laboratory
This laboratory is designed for class A aseptic area for Parenteral manufacturing as well as microbiological manipulations, this will help the students to familiarizes with current good manufacturing practices (CGMPs), design development and maintenance of aseptic area, growth, cultivation, isolation and identification of microbes. It also familiarizes the students with procedures for sterility testing and microbiological assays. It stores all the required instruments like Laminar Air Flow Bench, Autoclave, Hot Air Oven, Incubator, Antibiotic Zone Reader, Colony Counter, Fermenter etc.
