The Department of Pharmaceutical Analysis aims at both theoretical and practical education to assure the quality, safety and efficacy of drugs, which fulfils one of the basic tasks of pharmaceutical studies. Qualified faculty and state of the art instrumentation room make this department suitable for modern day teaching and research.

The mission of the department is to enlighten the students about application of analytical techniques in accordance with the drug regulatory affairs, to make them realize the importance of method validation, to make them understand development of quality assurance and quality control protocols as per GMP, GLP and cGMP guidelines. It is a regular practice of the department to teach the students to utilize the official pharmacopoeias to establish standards of the pure drugs and drug formulations.

The department has well maintained laboratories with sophisticated glass wares and a central instrumentation room with advanced versions of the analytical equipments is also available. Instruments like HPLC, FTIR and UV spectrophotometers, Polari meter, Flame photometer, Sonicator, Rotary flash evaporator, Refractometer and statistical soft wares are employed for regular teaching and research.

The department is involved in applied research like method development for API and formulations, and has plans to concentrate on bio analytical method development especially pharmacokinetic, bioavailability and bioequivalent studies using animal models.

The vision of the department is to establish a centre for excellence in quality assurance and quality control of drugs and regulatory affairs.
