Enzyme Research Laboratory

This laboratory is equipped with all necessary measuring and analytical instruments for research especially in biochemical engineering. Currently, the research project on “Bioconversion of low value gas to hydrogen and ethanol as clean fuel” is in progress. This research involves fermentation process using microorganisms and gaseous substrate in bioconversion. The other projects in progress are chiral drugs production using enzymatic membrane reactor. There are a number of research projects in progress based on enzyme catalysis in the production of value added products. The research laboratory has a number of equipment which include:

  • Enzymatic membrane reactor rig
  • Packed bed immobilised reactor rig
  • Enzymatic enzyme reactor rig
  • Oxygen meter and DO probe
  • Spectrophotometer
  • Toxic gas detector
  • Digital lux meter
  • Analytical balance
  • Orbital shaker
  • Gas chromatograph
  • 2L Fermentor
