Central Instrumentation Facility (CIF)

Central Instrumentation Facility (CIF)


Central Instrumentation Facility of Kalinga University houses a wide range of high-end instruments for pushing the boundaries of research in science and technology to higher level. These instruments and facilities help the faculty, research scholars and students to carry out globally competitive research in basic, applied and life sciences. The modern analytical instruments available in CIF offer a wide range of analytical methods/techniques for chemical/material testing and analysis. This consequently, will help researchers to publish their research findings in peer reviewed high impact factor journals. Ultimately, the concerted efforts of the CIF will contribute to the upliftment of the society at large.

Kalinga University plans for expansion of the facilities every year making it a core facility in the country. We intend to make this as a prominent hub for pioneering and collaborative analytical research in the country. CIF runs under the leadership of Dean Research of the university and is expected to self-sustain by revenue generation for the upkeep and maintenance of the instruments. Hence, a nominal charge on sample testing and analysis is collected from the users. The services of this facility are not limited only to the stakeholders of Kalinga University but are extended to Academic & Research Institutions, Universities, Industries and NGOs.

The Central Instrumentation Facility (CIF) of Kalinga University is well equipped with state of the art instruments like X-Ray Diffractometer, Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Thermal Cycler (PCR), Horizontal Mini Gel Electrophoresis Unit, UV Transilluminator, FT-IR Spectrophotometer, Bio-Chemistry Analyzer, Touch Screen Viscometer, Digital Viscometer, UV-Visible Spectrophotometer, Digital flame Turbidity Meter, Digital Flame Photometer, Rotary Tablet Press etc.

The CIF provides all the Students, Researcher, Faculty of the Kalinga University and external users the platform to use all the sophisticated instruments under one roof at nominal cost. It also ensures the proper implementation and promotion of research culture amongst all the stake holders in the University.
