Department of Biotechnology Laboratories

The Department of Biotechnology, DAV University, is actively involved in research that is being funded by premier agencies of the country like CSIR, DST and internally funded by DAV University. The focus of the Department is to inculcate the scientific aptitude in undergraduate and postgraduate students and to enrich their practical knowledge to support the theory part. Apart from this, the Department has complete research facilities for doctoral studies. Presently, the Department has the following laboratories equipped with basic and modern biotechnology facilities:

  • Biotechnology Laboratory
  • Plant Tissue Culture Laboratory
  • Biotechnology Research Laboratory
  • Plant Biotechnology & Genetic Engineering Laboratory


Biotechnology labs are well equipped with modern and basic instruments that include: UV-Vis Double Beam Spectrophotometer, Refrigerated Centrifuge, Thermal Cycler (PCR machine), Real-Time PCR machine, Circulating Water Bath, Laminar Air Flow Cabinet, Deep Freezer, Electrophoretic Units, pH Meter, Water Distillation Unit, Hot Air Ovens, Incubator, Autoclave, and, Microbalance. The Department is in the progress of developing a plant tissue culture research facility. Undergraduate and postgraduate biotechnology students avail these facilities for routine experiments related to molecular biology, biochemistry, plant & animal biotechnology, microbiology, genetics, cell biology, food biotechnology, recombinant DNA technology, and basic virology.
