INFRASTRUCTURE

ADVANCE ANALYTICAL LABORATORIES

They have all the necessary equipment like Ovens, Muffle Furnaces, Refrigerators, Centrifuges, Electrophore Spectronic 20 Colorimeter, Paper Chromatography, Thin layer chromatography for basic proximate Food Analysis as well as for protein Fractionation and Mineral Analysis.
a) Universal Testing Machine :
Manufactured by Instron (UK). This is one of the most expensive and sophisticated instrument used to test properties of food products in a number of ways.
b) UV / VIS SPECTROSCOPY :
Manufactured by Shimadzu, Perkin Elmer. This machine equipped with Lamda series, UV Winlab software includes powerful routines for Spectroscopic Data Handling, Quantitative Analysis, Kinetics and Instrument Validation.
c) FREEZE DRYER
Manufactured by Jovan Nordic, Gydevang (17-19, DK-3450) Allered, Denmark. The instrument is used in the dehydration of microbial cultures, proteins, biological active components (lycopene, -Carotene) which are sensitive to heat.
d) DIFFERENTIAL SCANNING COLORIMETER
Manufactured by Mettler, Toledo, Switzerland. It is used for thermal measurements of various food components such as starches, protein etc. Apart from food application it is widely used in pharmaceutical industries.
e) RAPID VISCO ANALYZER
Manufactured by Newport Scientific Pt. Ltd. Australia. RVA is used for measuring the viscosity profiles of various food products. It is widely used for measuring viscosities of starches, modified starches, flours, proteins, noodles, extruded food, in brewing, soups, gravies, powders etc. It is highly advantageous over viscoamylograph in terms of its sample size requirement & precision.
f) TEXTURE ANALYSER
Manufactured by Stable Micro System England. It is used in textural measurement in various industries like Bakery, Cereals, Confectionary, Dairy, Fruits &Vegetables, Gels, Meat, Poultry, Fish, Pasta, Noodles, Rice, Pet food, pharmaceuticals & other industrials materials.
