The Bombay College of Pharmacy is well equipped with laboratories and equipment
to give the students hands on training in the field of pharmacy. The college has
sufficient number of labs for undergraduate training in all the major areas of pharmacy.
The labs are well furnished and designed to permit students ample working space.
All security measures have been put in place to assist in case of emergencies. The
area of the laboratories complies with AICTE standards (75sqM) and the equipments
are maintained as per PCI guidelines. Every six months an audit of chemicals is
conducted by the lab attendants.
The College is running postgraduate and PhD program in five streams. Sixteen of
eighteen faculty members have been approved as research guide postgraduate studies
while eleven of them also guide PhD students. The College provides each department
a separate laboratory where each student is assigned a working table. Bombay College
of Pharmacy has a long history of research. The college has been continuously updating
and upgrading instruments necessary for the cutting edge. Instruments have been
purchased through funds from government, industry, and the management.
Other than working laboratories the college also has a Central Instrument room where
common instruments as well as instruments requiring air conditioning are kept. Each
instrument is operated through a SOP and a log book for efficient functioning. To
provide the instrument a non-fluctuating power supply college has installed huge
stabilizers and sturdy power connections.
