DEPARTMENT OF PHARMACEUTICAL TECHNOLOGY

Pharmacy is all about the study of medicine, looking at how the drugs are created, the blend of chemicals, their chemistry and interactions which is required for a qualified pharmacist to know. Students who are interested in medicine but do not want to become a doctor can choose Pharmacy as an excellent alternative. A pharmacist can easily help in taking pressure off the emergency services and contribute to saving lives in different ways. Moreover, unlike a doctor, a pharmacist has the advantage of regular hours. In this way, as aspirant can contribute to helping people medically and also have a more structured lifestyle than medicine or nursing can offer. JIS University being the hub of best pharmacy colleges in Kolkata provides high-quality education to the aspirants who dream to become successful in their life.

The School of Pharmaceutical Technology of JIS University started functioning in 2016 with Bachelor in Pharmacy, with prior approval from Pharmacy Council of India. Consequently, affiliation from AICTE was obtained for Pharmacy program. Currently we offer D. Pharm., B. Pharm., M. Pharm. (Pharmaceutics & Pharmacology), Bachelor of medical laboratory technology (BMLT), Bachelor of Physiotherapy and Ph.D. in Pharmacy; and certificate courses in Pharmacovigilance, Yoga and Naturopathy. The department is equipped with latest analytical instruments like Heidolph rotary evaporator, Multi station dissolution apparatus, Shimadzu UV spectrophotometer, Bruker FTIR, Agilent HPLC, Eppendorf deep freezer amongst a very few. We have immense research focus on recent drug delivery system, herbal drug development, process development techniques and drug analysis using modern spectrophotometric approach.

JIS University hosts some of the best B. Pharma colleges in Kolkata and D. Pharma colleges in Kolkata that provide world-class education with the help of highly qualified faculties. We inculcate the students with technical skills as well as subject-related information to ensure that they can easily find a job. We provide the students with the best infrastructure, well-equipped labs, sports ground and everything they need to step towards a beautiful career. In this modern world, we help the pharmacist to grow and find a suitable job for themselves. A well organised student mentoring system is constantly working for overall development of each student.

We have the best private pharmacy colleges in Kolkata that provide excellent opportunities to gain latest education and get placement in the top companies all over India and abroad. Students passing out from the JIS University can easily find suitable jobs as they are equipped with industry oriented skills that make them highly employable.

UV Visible Spectrophotometer

It is used for the determination of impurities in organic molecules. It is useful in the structure elucidation of organic molecules, such as in detecting the presence or absence of un-saturation, the presence of hetero atoms. UV absorption spectroscopy can be used for the quantitative determination of compounds that absorb UV radiation. UV absorption spectroscopy can characterize those types of compounds which absorbs UV radiation thus used in qualitative determination of compounds. Identification is done by comparing the absorption spectrum with the spectra of known compounds. This technique is used to detect the presence or absence of functional group in the compound. Kinetics of reaction can also be studied using UV spectroscopy. Drugs (either raw or in formulations) can be assayed by making a suitable solution of the drug in a solvent and measuring the absorbance at specific wavelength. Molecular weights of compounds can be measured UV spectrophotometer may be used as a detector for HPLC.

FTIR

FTIR is used to investigate proteins in hydrophobic membrane environments. It is useful in the structure elucidation of organic molecules. Typical studies include analysing tissue sections as an alternative to conventional histopathology and examining the homogeneity of pharmaceutical tablets. The speed of FTIR allows spectra to be obtained from compounds as they are separated by a gas chromatograph. Measuring the gas evolved as a material is heated allows qualitative identification of the species to complement the purely quantitative information provided by measuring the weight loss.

Lyophilizer

It is often used to increase the shelf life of products, such as vaccines and other injectable. By removing the water from the material and sealing the material in a vial. Freeze-drying is used to preserve food and make it very light weight. The freeze-drying process is used more commonly in the pharmaceutical industry. In chemical synthesis, products are often lyophilized to make them more stable, or easier to dissolve in water for subsequent use. In bio separations, freeze-drying can be used also as a late- stage purification procedure. Also it is capable of concentrating substances with low molecular weights that are too small to be removed by a filtration membrane. Freeze drying is also used for floral preservation and wedding bouquet preservation has become very popular with brides who want to preserve their wedding day flowers.

Single Station tablet punching machine

A single station tablet press is a simple mechanical machine that can be used to compress powder into tablets that are uniform in size, shape and weight. The machine is used for low-volume production of tablets for a wide range of applications from cosmetics and pharmaceuticals to cleaning products.

Tablet Coating Machine

It is used to coat the tablets which servers number of purposes. It gives an elegant look to the tablets. Mask unpleasant taste and odor of the tablets. Coating protects the tablet from stomach acids and protects the stomach lining from aggressive drugs such as enteric coated aspirin. It provides a delayed release of the medicaments.

Tray Dryer

It is used for the drying of pharmaceuticals, chemicals, powders, granules, plastic granules etc. Also used for drying of food and confectionery products.

Student's Organ Bath

Student Organ Bath is a chamber in which isolated organs or tissues can be administered with drugs, or stimulated electrically, in order to measure their function. It is used in pharmacology research, particularly when studying the contraction of smooth muscle in tissues such as ileum, colon, vas deferens, trachea, bladder, corpus cavernosum etc. For studying the effects of drugs on receptors in drug discovery and combinatorial chemistry, novel techniques such as high throughput screening, ultrahigh throughput screening and high content screening, pharmacogenomics, proteomics and array technology have largely superseded the use of organ baths.

Digital Actophotometer

Actophotometer is an apparatus used in pharmacological laboratory to measure the locomotor activity (horizontal activity) by photoelectric cells which are connected in circuit with a counter. When the beam of light falling on the photo cell is cut off by the animal, a count is recorded. An actophotometer could have either circular or square arena in which the animal moves. Both rats & mice may be used for testing in this equipment. The activity of CNS depressant or stimulant drugs can be measured by the help of this apparatus.

Cook’s Pole Climbing Apparatus

Cook’s pole climbing apparatus is one of the important apparatus in a pharmacology laboratory setup. This apparatus helps us to study the antipsychotic drugs. It has three types of indicator (Light, sound, ability of climbing on a pole) to identify the level of anti-psychotic effects of drugs.

Digital ECG Machine

ECG machine (electrocardiograph) is medical equipment or medical device which measures and records the electrical activity of the heart. ECG leads or electrodes are placed to the patient with the help of Conductive ECG Jelly. This apparatus is used in anatomy & physiology lab and as well as in pharmacology laboratory to detect the various heart waves to identify the underlying cardiac problems.

Pharmacy is the branch of science that links the health science with the chemical science, and it is well concerned with the discovery, development, production, and distribution of drugs. Pharmacists are the medication experts on the health care team, offering information and advice to help patients successfully manage their medication therapy with minimum side effects. Pharmacists have the knowl¬edge, skills and expertise to be trusted with a patient's health. Pharmacists are among the most accessible health care professionals.
