About Central Research Laboratory (CRL)
Capacity Building Programme on “Basic Experiments”
The Central Research Laboratory of Patna Women’s College, Autonomous, organized a Capacity Building Programme on “Basic Experiments” for school children of classes X and XII of Patna on 29th April, 2023.
35 students, both girls and boys, from economically poor background from different schools of Patna like, Miller Secondary School, Bankipur School, St.Joseph’s School and St.Xavier’s School participated actively. It was conducted under the supervision of Dr. Sumeet Ranjan and Dr. Sister M.Stuti A.C, Assistant Professors of the Department of Zoology, Patna Women’s College.
Students performed experiments which were from their syllabus. They studied plant cells from onion peel and identified Lactobacillus bacteria from curd. They also learnt the names of glassware used in science laboratories. They were excited to see and handle microscope and see different equipment. All the students were enthusiastic to learn more. This type of exposure enhanced their scientific temper. The programme proved to be highly useful and helped the student to learn by doing.
It’s with pride we introduce Central Research Laboratory (CRL) of Patna Women’s College to one and all.
A Central Research Laboratory is of utmost importance in any academic institution where the state-of-the-art analytical and high-priced equipment are kept together at a single location and are handled by qualified personnel to provide scientific and technical services for supporting research carried out by UG, PG, PhD and other project students. It strengthens the research-relevant infrastructure of basic science and technology. This kind of facility represents a key commitment for preserving and raising the efficiency of research to the level of international standards.
The Central Research Laboratory (CRL) was established in October 2014 with the financial support given by the University Grants Commission (UGC) and the Govt. of Bihar. The idea being that high priced instruments which may not be available to young budding scientists and researchers in individual laboratories which can be made available at the Central Research Laboratory. In this connection, the independent laboratory, the CRL of Patna Women’s College has the most modern and sophisticated equipment to users of the ever-expanding number of UG and PG students and researchers with various needs.
Our future endeavor will be to make this facility available to other academic and research institutions, industries and organizations in the neighborhood.
