|Central Laboratory Facility (CLF)|
Brief about the facility
Chhattisgarh Council of Science and Technology has established a state of art Central Laboratory Facility (CLF) with the following major objectives:
One of the major objectives of the CLF is Capacity Building that is Human Resource Development in area of sophisticated and advanced research instrumentation. This would not only improve the status of research & development in the state but also provide the trained manpower to excel nationally and internationally. This present manual has been prepared as a part of Advance Instrumentation Training Program for Researchers, Academicians, Scientists, and Post Graduate Students who may be involved in R&D or interested in instrumentation related work. The training focuses in some of the state of art equipments such as Gas Chromatograph, Gas Chromatograph – Mass Spectrophotometer, High Pressure Liquid Chromatograph, Over Pressure Liquid Chromatograph, Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer, Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrophotometer, Fourier Transform Infra Red Spectrophotometer, UV-VIS Spectrophotometer, UV-VIS-NIR Spectrophotometer and Microwave Sample Preparation System.
While the training would provide a hand on practice at all these instruments, the training manual provides the detailed description of the principles, standard operating procedure and methodology as well as the applications in research and development.
Facility available at CLF
Under the CLF the major analysis techniques available presently for R&D and testing work are:
The major equipments presently available with CLF are UV-Vis, UV-Vis NIR, FTIR, Atomic absorption Spectrometer, Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer; Gas Chromatograph, Gas Chromatograph – Mass Spectrometer, High Pressure Liquid Chromatograph, Over Pressure Layer Chromatograph, Microwave sample preparation system and other ancillary equipments etc.
Domains of CLF
CLF in accordance with its customary domains will extend testing facility in various fields such as: Agriculture, Archeology, Bioenergy, Biotechnology, Chemical Sciences, Earth Sciences & Geology, Environmental Sciences, Life Sciences, Material Sciences, Medical Sciences, Medicinal & Aromatic Plants, Pharmaceuticals (Phytochemical/Herbal Industry), Physical Sciences, and Other areas/fields/sectors relevant to the state.
In the above mentioned domains the Central Laboratory Facility would provide:
In an effort to widen the knowledge spectrum the two prime R&D institutions Chhattisgarh Council of Science and Technology and Pt. Ravishankar Shukla University, Raipur signed a Memorandum of Understanding (Hyperlink) on ………………. . This MoU would enable exchange of ideas and make available the instrumentation facility in the overall interest of the state.
