Research Facility


The advanced research facility laboratory is established for the students, research scholars and teachers of the MandsaurUniversity who are actively engaged in R&D activities in the emerging areas of Pharmaceutical science, Engineering & Technology. The Central Laboratory is presently having sophisticated instruments like High Performance Thin layer Chromatography, High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS), UV-VIS-NIR-Spectrophotometer, Differential Scanning Calorimeter, Lyophilizer, FTIR Spectrometer, Gas Chromatography etc.These instruments are generally used to pursue R & D activities by our University Teaching Departments other academic/research Institute/Universities and Industries.
