The Department has excellent facilities for teaching and research in Modern Biology and Biotechnology, namely, Animal Cell Culture, Plant Tissue Culture, Fermentation technology, Microbiology, Immunology, Environmental Biotechnology, Bioinformatics and Genetic Engineering.

The department houses every facility for the teaching and learning of Biotechnology from PG level up to research level with an exclusive National College Instrumentation Facility (NCIF) which is equipped with Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS), Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrophotometer (GC-MS), FT-Infra Red Spectrophotometer and Fluorescent Spectrophotometer.

The Fermentation Facility of the Department has a state-of-the-art facility for Bioreactors. It is equipped with practically the entire range of Bioreactors such as Stirred-Tank / Photo-Bioreactor / Air-lift / Fluidized Bed Reactors.

Besides, the faculty engage actively in research and are in process of equipping the Laboratory further through research grants. Over the past couple of years, nearly 94 lakh of rupees have been obtained as grant from DST-SERB, UGC and TNSCST. The laboratory is virtually open on all days through 24 hours a day to enable full-fledged research activities. That’s why, the facility is considered most opportunistic by Post Graduate students.
