To encourage and support students, researchers and professionals engaged in academic or research institute, and industry in the area of drug discovery and related research, the Indian Pharmacopoeia Commission (IPC) proposes to extend its testing and analysis facilities available in its high-tech laboratory.  As on date, IPC has various specialized laboratories, well equipped with latest instrumentation facilities for analytical research and development work.

According to senior officials, the IPC laboratories have accreditations from various national and international organizations including accreditation from National Accreditation Board for Testing & Calibration Laboratory (NABL) for ISO 17025 and it is WHO prequalified Quality Control Laboratory (QCL) for pharmaceuticals. IPC is also accredited for ISO 17034 (Reference material producer) and ISO 17043: 2010 for Proficiency Testing Provider (PT).

Since its incorporation in 2009, the IPC has been focusing on drug testing, quality, efficacy, research and development and patient safety across the country. In order to promote the highest standards of drugs for use in human and animals, within practical limits of the technologies available, for manufacture and analysis, IPC has been consistently engaged in improving its technical capabilities both by adding sophisticated/updated analytical and other instruments and engaging highly skilled professionally qualified manpower.

Being well equipped with modern sophisticated instrumental facilities for research and development work, the Commission is enthusiastic to support the drug discovery and research activity where the researches do not have adequate instrument facilities and facing problem in analyzing and characterization of their samples, officials said.

The concerned students, researchers and professionals are required to submit the proposal, in the prescribed form for availing the facility through the head of department of their institution, specifying the purpose of the testing and analysis.

The facilities shall be on payment basis.  It is required to supply samples for each instrument separately with proper sample name, analysis required and quantity of sample in eppendorf/vial tubes. Unstable and explosive compounds are not accepted for analysis.
