Video Presentations

Biotechnology: The Destiny of Mankind :  Biotechnology – The awesome technology of the modern age science. From home brewing to Human cloning, watch what it could do to us in future…

IVF is an ART – a new career for Biotechnologists : IVF is an ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) - skill that requires a good animal cell culture handling technique.. watch this video searching for a morula after a successful IVF.

Grams Staining : A common tool in bacteriological technique videographed for understanding the procedure for beginners in Biotechnology at PG level.

Changing culture medium for animal cells in culture flask : Changing the culture medium is an important procedure in the maintenance of cell culture in laboratory. It involves careful examination of the culture and aseptic transfer of fresh medium.

Examining Primary Cell Culture for media change : Establishing primary cell culture is a basic experiment that one has to learn in animal cell culture techniques. Once cultured, these cells and most cells tend to form monolayer of cells. Maintenance of the culture is based on careful microscopic examination of the culture and its subsequent passage. The video demonstrates examination of a primary cell culture (mice hepatocytes) after 24 Hours in 25 sq. cm flask

Preparing a fermentor for an experiment : Working with a fermentor involves careful preparation of the fermentor vessel for the purpose. The video shows the preparation of the vessel by the students while doing an experiment.

Fermentor Designs – Stirred Tank & Air-lift : Stirred tank fermentor is a basic model to understand a fermentor at industrial scale. Air-lift fermentor is a modified vessel for a different purpose. Watch these two vessels under working conditions.
