Central Research Laboratory


The Central Research Laboratory is equipped with, but not limited to, the following analytical equipment:

Sykam Amino Acid Analyser :This is used for the analysis of individual amino acids in various forms of samples.

GC-MS (Agilent 7890A GC/5975 MSD: Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrophotometer combines the features of Gas chromatography and mass spectrometry. It is for identification and quantification of various volatile compounds in sample. It is applicable in drug detection, exposure investigation, and investigation of unknown samples.

Buck Model 210 VGP Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS) It is designed to measure the concentration of metallic elements in solution. It provides integrated measurements in absorbance or emission intensity as well as sample concentration in comparison to standard solution.

SCHIMADZU UV/Visible Spectrophotometer. It is a double beam UV/Visible Spectrophotometer with an integrated user interface for local control. It has highly stable optics and two detectors that measure the sample and reference solution simultaneously to optimize the accuracy of the measurement. It is useful for photometric, concentration, multi -wavelength, spectrum scanning, quantitation, Kinetics, DNA and protein analysie.

Rapid Visco Analyzer (RVA 4500)

It is a rotational viscometer that incorporates the latest visco-analyser technology, including variable heating, cooling and shear capabilities. It is suitable for a variety of applications requiring accurate viscosity information, such as testing of starch based-products for quality control.


It is a microscope attached with a camera. It reveals shape/structures of organisms

DDS Bomb Calorimeter ( e 2K) It is used to measure the calorific value of solids. DDS bomb calorimeter systems are the most advanced bomb calorimeter systems available today. It has three different models in their Scientific CAL2k range: CAL2k, ECO and e2k

Keltec TM 2100 Distillation Unit

It is a distillation unit, convenient and safe instrument for rapid steam distillation. One of the main applications of the unit is the distillation of Kjeldahl digest, where alkali is conveniently added via a built in dispensing system. The distillate is collected in a receiver flask for subsequent titration for nitrogen/protein determination.


It is a heating system.It is used in digesting samples for protein analysis.

NEOS Essential Oil Extractor MA 125

It is specifically designed for open system (atmospheric pressure) essential oil extraction. It extracts essential oil from fresh and dried plant materials. It can perform solvent free microwave extraction at atmospheric pressure.

ZIRBUS Freeze Drier VACO 2-EIt

It is used to preserve perishable materials.It removes water content without greatly altering the physical structure of the sample.

Vacuum Oven FCD- 3000

It is used for drying purposes under vacuum operation.


The Laboratory newly acquired X-ray Diffraction spectrometer for material testing . The model DW-XRD-Y3000 is designed for materials research and industrial products analysis. It is the perfect combination of conventional analysis with special-purpose measurement products.
