Facilities Corner

ICAR-CIRCOT has established Facilities Corner to enable usage of major equipment and facilities available in ICAR-CIRCOT by other institutions and R&D laboratories who cannot procure and maintain sophisticated analytical instruments themselves. The main objective of setting up of Facilities Corner is to provide guidance in acquisition of data using sophisticated instruments.

For information, including details on the procedures to follow to analyse your samples, please visit our Sophisticated Analytical Instruments Facility (SAIF) website (Under construction)
