Bio-pharmaceutical lab for IMTECH

25 January 2011

The Institute of Microbial Technology (IMTECH), a part of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), today got a bio-pharmaceutical laboratory, which is a one-of-its kind in the public sector. Union Science & Technology Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal inaugurated the facility at the IMTECH premises in Sector 39, Chandigarh.

The laboratory has the facility of microfiltration, centrifuge and ultra-filtration. It is meant for drug purification, which will increase the remuneration value during the transfer of technology. The facility is yet to get Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) certification, which is a global standard used in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, food and medical devices.

Speaking at the function, which also marked the Institute’s foundation day, IMTECH Director Girish Sahni said, “We have ploughed back the money earned through transfer of technology into the laboratory.” CSIR Director General S K Brahmchari said, “IMTECH is a small precious stone which sits on the crown of CSIR. It has shown how it can glitter and do that for which it was established.”
