Innovation Center overview

Innovation Centre, Bundelkhand University, Jhansi provides analytical facilities in the area of biological, physical and chemicals sciences. The centre has established Central Instrumentation Facility (CIF) to promote R&D in university and its affiliated colleges and to provide analytical facilities to researchers and industries throughout India. Sophisticated analytical instruments are vital for pursuing research and performing quality R& D. X Ray Diffractometer, Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer, Ultra Centrifuge, Digital Imaging System, Multi Mode Microplate Reader, Real Time PCR, PQMS, Two Dimensional Gel Electrophoresisa etc. These instruments are expensive and cannot be provided through individual project mechanism. Moreover, these instruments are of inter/multidisciplinary utility and thus it is desirable to use them on sharing basis for their optimum utilization.

The aims and Objectives of Innovation Centre are:

  • To inculcate and nurture the innovative ideas of students and faculty members of the university.
  • Provide facilities of sophisticated analytical instruments to scientists and other users from academic institutes, R&D laboratories and industries to enable them to carry out measurements for R&D work.
  • Acquire and develop capability for preventive maintenance and repair of sophisticated instruments.
  • Development of new measurement/analytical techniques: Efforts are made by the SAIF to develop new techniques/ methods of analysis to put the instruments to their full use and offer them to the scientists for exploring new dimensions in research in various areas of science and technology.
  • Organize short term courses/workshops on the use and application of various instruments and analytical techniques.
  • Train technicians for maintenance and operation of sophisticated instruments.
