Availability of laboratory animals is
crucial for teaching and research in Pharmaceutical sciences. Our
Institute has a separate ANIMAL HOUSE FACILITY spread over 750sq.
area and as per the CPCSEA guidelines for "Education and Research".
The animal facility is intended to assure quality maintenance and
welfare of animals used in laboratory studies while conducting
biomedical and behavioral research and testing of products. This
promotes the human care of animals used in biomedical research.
Separate rooms are available for quarantine to separate of newly
received animals from those already in the facility until the health
or microbial status of the newly received animals is determined.
Proper environmental temperature is maintained in the animal rooms
by using air-conditioner in hot seasons and hot-blower during the

the animal house for conducting experimentation. These animals are
kept in polypropylene cages and water is provided with polypropylene
water bottles. Separate storage areas is designed for feed, bedding,
