The funding has made BCP self-sufficient in several important facilities like spectrophotometers, HPLC, GC, HPTLC, flash chromatography, Silicon Graphics Computers, computer clusters, molecular modeling software, ultra-low temperature storage media, high speed centrifuges, laser doppler flowmeter, plethysmometer, electrophoresis equipment, Gel electrophoresis reader, spheronizer, granulators, DSC, freeze driers, microwave and parallel synthesizers etc.

The student community of BCP besides being academically excellent has also shown its talent in various extra-curricular activities.
