My Studies


The Institute of Biomedical Science has seven state-of-the art laboratories for teaching, learning and research. These include:

  • a laboratory for medical and chemical diagnostics,
  • a laboratory for histology and microbiology,
  • a laboratory for microbiological cell culture and nuclear medicine,
  • a laboratory for chemistry and immunology and
  • a Laboratory for polymer and migration Analysis .

The Laboratory for chromatographic & spectrometric analysis is equipped with cutting-edge chromatography-mass spectrometry systems, which students and teaching staff can use for research. The laboratory is equipped to handle analytical tasks in the following research areas:

  • In-process purity testing and identification of impurities
  • Migrating packaging components: extractables and leachables
  • Method development for biomarker identification
