ABOUT PHARMACEUTICS DEPARTMENT
The Department of Pharmaceutics was established in the year 2011 and is situated on the ground floor of the VIPER. The Department is actively involved in development of various novel drug delivery systems.
FACILITIES IN OUR DEPARTMENT
Department is well established with state of art facility and modern instruments for evaluation various solid dosage forms. Our lab is equipped with instruments like 10 basket dissolution assembly, double cone blender, sonicator and tablet coating machine. We also possess rotary evaporator, vacuum oven, stirrers, incubator shaker and 10 station tablet punching machine for tablet production and Franz diffusion assembly for evaluation of bio adhesive dosage forms. Further, we also had SigmaTech software for DOE (Design of Experiments) and QbD (Quality by Design) for developing Pharmaceutical products/processes.
AREA OF RESEARCH INTEREST
We are actively involved in development of various dosage forms like floating drug delivery and microsponge drug delivery systems. Our areas of research include Enhancement of Poor water soluble drugs by different techniques like Co crystal and Solid dispersion techniques. We do tie up with leading pharmaceutical industry like Dr. Reddy’s laboratories, Granules India and Suraksha Pharma for pursuing the projects of our PG students.
