The General laboratory area consists of a Dry Lab section and a Wet Lab section. These sections are mainly for preparation of samples prior to instrumental analysis. Some of the notable equipment installed therein includes a Freeze Drier for lyophilization; Rotary Evaporators that run on chilled-water; a Deep Freezer (-86 0C); Drying Ovens, as well as an Accelerated Aging Oven for investigating the shelf-life of herbal products.
