About the Central Instrumentation Centre:

Central Instrumentation Centre was established in the year 1979. The main objective of this Central Instrumentation Centre is to provide testing and analytical services to students, teachers and scientists in this backward region of Telangana. Analytical Services were provided with sophisticated electronic instruments procured under various plan periods. In order to operate the equipment and provide the required analytical services, University Grants Commission has permitted the appointment of four qualified staff members with Lecturers Grade in the centre under USIC (University Science Instrumentation Centre). Consequently the university appointed the following staff members. With time and prolonged usage, some of the sophisticated instruments faced aging and due to non availability of spares and revolutionary improvements in technology they had to be replaced with new equipment with higher configurations and PC based. Three of the basic tools for chemical analysis, Viz., UV-VIS Spectrophotometer, Infra Red Spectrophotometer and Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer were replaced on a buy back basis. Later some more equipment was added for meeting the research needs. At present the equipment available and their working status is given separately.

RESEARCH ACTIVITIES OF THE DEPARTMENT:

The Central Instrumentation provides the above facilities to the researchers of all Science Departments including Pharmacy for their research work for achieving their Ph.D. and M. Phil Degrees, and carrying out the research projects. The staff  of CIC are also engaging some  Physics classes in the Department of Physics in addition to the work of Central Instrumentation Centre. The staff in CIC have also published some papers in some journals .

Researchers from other institutions in Warnagal like Regional Engineering College, Kakatiya Medical College, Kakatiya Institute of Technology and Science etc. have utilised the facilities available in this centre for their Ph.D. and Post Graduation dissertation work.

Research Scholars from other Universities/institutions like Osmania University, Sri Krishna Devaraya University, Sri Venkateshwara University and University of Agriculture/ S.P. College, Womens College, Koti, Hyderabad, used these facilities for their research work. Researchers from neighbouring states have also used these facilities.

Post Graduate students from all the Science Departments of this University visited the centre for practical acquaintance with the latest techniques in Analytical instrumentation and some of them for their routine practical work. Students from other institutions like KITS and KMC, CKM College etc. visited the centre for practical acquaintance with the analytical techniques.

The staff members are engaged in sharing regular work load in concerned departments and also serving as resource persons for refresher courses in various Science Departments of  the University.

ACHIEVEMENTS  :

1. The University sanctioned under the UGC IX plan grants of an amount of Rs.10.00 lakhs to Central Instrumentation Centre. A FTIR  spectrophotometer Model BX-I system has been procured and installed.. This instrument is presently being used by several research scholars and teaching staff of various faculties.

2.The  University  sanctioned  under  the   UGC  IX  plan  grants  an  amount  of  Rs. 4.5 lakhs to Central Instrumentation Centre. A UV-VIS spectrophotometer Model Lambda-25 has been purchased and installed..

  • We have procured  DSC & TGA from UGC special grant and installed.
  • The Isotope lab has been strengthened by procuring multichannel analyzer with the detector system from UGC special grant.
  • We have purchased New PerkinElmer Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer Analyst 200 on buy back basis from UGC equipment grant.
  • We have successfully upgraded the Soft Ware for the FTIR Spectrophotometer with the assistance of UGC IMF grants
