The objective of this lab is to provide practical exposure to the pharmacy students on various biological assays and drug assays involved in quality evaluation of pharmaceutical products. The students will learn about different quality testing procedures and techniques applied on pharmaceutical substances.


CLO: 1. To explain principles, theory and experiments related to pharmaceutical quality evaluation.
CLO: 2. To perform assays and bioassays on different pharmaceutical products
CLO: 3. To analyze given data and problems using basic principles of pharmaceutical quality management.
