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:
  • To provide state of the art instrumentation facility to research community in the state.
  • Serve as an incubator for specific research programmes pertaining to the modern science and application oriented research.
  • To cultivate the instrumentation culture in the scientific community in the state.
  • To ensure capacity building.
  • Serve as testing facility and also play instrumental role in development of industry in the state.
  • Encourage IPR ideology amongst Industry, R&D institutions and Academia.
The laboratory not only provides state of art instrumentation facility to the researchers, academicians, entrepreneurs, industrialist and innovators but also Support/undertake research, design and developmental projects; establishes interface between Industry, R&D institutions, Academia, Traditional knowledge owners and Society and serves as testing facility thus playing an instrumental role in development of industry in the state.

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:
  • Spectroscopy: UV-Vis, NIR, FTIR, Flame Spectroscopy, Mass Spectroscopy
  • Chromatography: Gas Chromatography, Liquid Chromatography, Layer Chromatography,
  • Microwave Sample Preparation System.
  • Alongwith other ancillary equipments and lab requirements.

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: Activities under Central Laboratory Facility
  • Under the aegis of Central Laboratory Facility the testing of water samples for arsenic has been conducted. The work has been done under the Department of Science and Technology sponsored project entitled "Field Scale trials of the ARI, Pune Technology for the removal of Arsenic from drinking water in Rajnandgaon District, Chhattisgarh".
  • Testing of water samples from Department of Chemical Engineering, National Institute of Technology, Raipur: 257 water samples were tested.
  • One day demonstration programme: One day demonstration programme was organized on 25.01.2012. In the programme 32 students of BE (Biotech) from Raipur Institute of Technology were demonstrated the state of art instrumentation facility and briefed about the principles and working of the instruments.
  • Advanced Instrumentation Training Programme: One 5 day training programme was organized from 21st to 25th February 2012. In the programme the 18 students were trained and given demonstration of the advanced analytical methods using the instrumentation facility. The students were provided with a course material alongwith hands on training on the instrumentation available under CLF. In the training programme Dr. Vasudev Mulchandani and Dr. Ishrat Alim, Quality Assurance Laboratory, M.P. Council of Science and Technology were also invited as experts. The students were distributed certificates on successful completion of the training programme.
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.
