The Sophisticated Instruments Centre (SIC) was established in 2012 as a necessary and very important facility for carrying out research work in the field of Life Sciences, Medical Sciences and Physical Sciences. The latest models of various scientific instruments like Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), HPTLC, Flash Chromatograph, Real Time PCR, Thermo-cycler, Gel electrophoresis, Gel Doc System, Autoclave, Ultra-centrifuge, Ultra-Freezer (-80C), Spectrophotometer, Spectroflourimeter, Lyophilizer and Florescent Microscope, etc. have been installed in the SIC laboratories. The building of SIC was completed with grants from UGC during the 11th plan. Similarly SEM was also purchased with grant from UGC. Majority of the other instruments have been purchased with grant from DBT under the Interdisciplinary Programme in Life Sciences (DBTIPLS-102/IFD/SAN/4650/2011-2012). SIC has 19 rooms including Seminar room, Computer laboratory, Store room and nine laboratories that are fully air-conditioned and facilitated with all basic requirements. A Fossil Museum has been established in the centre which attracts lot of visitors.
The major aim of the centre is to make maximum scientific facilities available to the research scholars of the university so that they can generate good quality research in the form of data from their experimental work. It enables them to compete at international level in terms of data generation from their research work.
