A capacious workshop and various lab facilities available in MIU provide rich and practical educational environment for the students. Not only do they provide ample opportunities to move beyond the classroom and get hands-on experience, but also make the students industry-ready.
MIU complies with the provisions of safety and health as prescribed under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, 1994 for the laboratory facilities dedicated to Biotechnology program.
Three laboratories - Molecular Biology, Microbiology and Proteomics - are well equipped to carry out basic Biotechnology experiments. The lab includes equipments such incubators, pH meters, water baths, centrifuges, electrophoresis apparatus, spectrophotometers (ultraviolet-visible), incubator shakers, stirrers, hotplates, analytical balances, top-loading balances, autoclaves, freezers/chillers, Laminar flow chambers and fumehoods.
Specialised facilities are also provided in the Molecular Biology lab like gradient thermocycler, electrophoresis apparatus and gel documentation system and refrigerated centrifuge.
The Proteomics Lab includes protein/enzyme technology facilities: chromatographic apparatus and Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay Reader (ELISA) Reader.
Light microscopes, stereo microscopes and specialised incubators for shake and plate cultures are installed in the Microbiology lab.
It caters to all the computing needs of the students, faculty and staffs for their research and teaching. Not only does it support, but also enhances the educational mission of the institute, thus enriching the learning experience and supporting academic activities. In order to keep up with the latest developments in technlogy, the hardwares are upgraded on regular basis.
Dedicated to both undergraduate and postgraduate study, it plays an important role in understanding and appreciating concepts of electronic circuits, power electronics applications and energy conversion. The students get hands-on experience in analogue system and digital system. The laboratory also
Mechanical department has a sprawling workshop, comprising of machine shop, foundry, smithy, sheet metal work, plumbing, welding, and carpentry sections.
