The central facility for Industrial Pharmacy lab was established in 2006 to provide hands-on training of commonly used equipments in pharma industry to undergraduate and post graduate students. The penultimate aim was to carry out collaborative work with industry and establish a healthy industry-academia relationship.

The facility has important equipments like High Pressure Homogenizer, Spray Drier, Rapid Mixer Granulator, Fluid Bed Processor, Extruder Spheronizer, Tablet Compression Machine and Tablet Coater to name a few. The equipments were procured in view of pilot scale batches for industrial projects. This facilitates in carrying out research projects received from various companies.

This facility also provides exclusive Pharmaceutical Engineering equipment’s like Bernoulli’s apparatus, Reynolds apparatus, Flow meters etc.

The facility is also made available to other academic institutes for their research activities.

Introduction

SPPSPTM Library plays a vital role in collection, development, and dissemination of scientific and technical information to meet the present and future needs of the school. The library is made easily accessible from all corners of the college premises. This library is a branch library of NMIMS – Prof Y.K. Bhushan Information & Knowledge Resource Centre.

The primary objective of the unit is to make available books, reference books, journals, bound volumes, A-V material, thesis, and dissertations to the faculty members and students of the school. It provides a wide range of current, accurate, and authoritative information from a vast selection. The uniqueness of the library is the collection of various books and resources in the field of Pharmaceutics, Pharmacology, Clinical Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Quality Assurance, Biotechnology, and related subjects. A complete database of the library holdings has been created by using specialized library software – KOHA. Users can access Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC).

The library uses the Dewey decimal classification for assigning subject codes to books. Every book in the library has a unique Subject Code, an Author Mark, and a unique Accession No. Each book has its own School and Campus code. Campus code prefixes accession number, and School code suffixes accession number. The library follows Open Access System. Access to Elsevier Science Direct – Pharmacology, Toxicology and Pharmaceutical Science collection is available.

Herbal Garden of the school is located on ground floor of the main building. It has beautiful collections of various medicinal plants.

Following plants are present in herbal garden:

  • Ajowan
  • Aloe
  • Ashwagandha
  • Bael
  • Black Pepper
  • Brahmi
  • Castor
  • Chillies
  • Ginger
  • Guduchi
  • Haldi
  • Ixora
  • Jaswand
  • Lemon
  • Lemon Grass
  • Milkweed, Rui
  • Sadafuli White & Sadafuli Red
  • Sarpagandha
  • Shatavari
  • Tulsi
  • Vasaka
  • Vekhanda

The Animal Facility is located on ninth floor of the building having approximately 1,000 sq. ft. area. It has three animal rooms, one experimental area, washing area and quarantine room. Office and store room is separated from other areas. The quarantine room and animal rooms are maintained under controlled conditions of temperature.

All the experimental animals are provided with balanced animal feed pellets and purified water. The animal facility is registered with CPCSEA. All experiments on animals are performed with the approval of the Institutional Animal Ethics Committee (IAEC). Records of day to day activities, maintenance and experimentation on the animals are maintained.

The alternative to animal testing is the rising concept of current research. Cell culture is one of the best-preferred tools used in cellular and molecular biology; it serves as an excellent model system for studying the normal physiology and biochemistry of cell (e.g., metabolic studies, ageing), the effects of drugs and toxic compounds on the cells, and mutagenesis and carcinogenesis. It is the major tool in drug screening and development.

Various research activities involving cell and tissue culture are carried out at cell cuture laboratory of SPPSPTM. The facility has a Class 10,000 aseptic area and is well equipped with modern instruments. Different mammalian cell lines of different types of cells such as breast cancer (MDA-MB 231, MCF-7), cervical cancer (SiHa), lung cancer (A549), embryonic kidney (HEK-293), brain (U-87 MG), etc., are maintained in the cell cuture facility.

 

The facility comprises of:

  • 02 Biosafety Cabinets
  • 02 CO2 Incubator
  • 01 Multimode Microplate reader ( absorbance, fluorescence and luminescence)
  • 01 Automated cell counter
  • 02 Inverted Microscope 
  • 03 liquid nitrogen cryopreservers
  • 01 Refrigerator and -20° C medical freezer
  • 01 tabletop centrifuge
