Molecular Biology Laboratory at ICAR-IIAB

Since the construction of Laboratory Building of ICAR-IIAB is yet to start at Garhkhatanga, Ranchi, two fully air-conditioned molecular biology laboratories are being established in the building provided by ICAR-IINRG in its PDU Campus situated at Namkum, Ranchi. Four work benches and one laminar flow cabinet have been installed in the laboratories. Several essential equipment viz., autoclave, pH meter, top pan balance, refrigerators, electronic balance, microwave oven and deep freezers have already been procured. Procurement of specialized equipment required for molecular biology laboratories such as digital stereo zoom microscope, shaker incubator, thermocyclers, UV-Vis spectrophotometer, gel documentation system, refrigerated centrifuge, tabletop centrifuge, real-time PCR and ultra-deep freezers is under progress. To ensure uninterrupted power supply in the laboratories a 40 KVA automatic power generator has already been procured while the procurement of three 5 KVA UPS is under progress. Besides all these, a high speed (16Mbps) internet connection and three bioinformatics workstations are also in the process of procurement. All work places in the institute is well connected with intercoms.
