BIOCHEMISTRY 

Biochemistry  is the area of chemistry that is generally concerned with analysis of bodily fluids for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. It is an applied form of biochemistry (not to be confused with medicinal chemistry, which involves basic research for drug development).The Department of Biochemistry was established in the year 1986 under the able guidance of the Principal Dr. Ranade, Dean Dr. C R Bidri.Departmental library has about 234 books with latest editions of textbooks, reference books and 34 complementary books and journals.The National conference APPICON 2000 was conducted in collaboration with the department of Physiology and Pharmacology in the year 2000. Organized CME on “Stem Cell Therapy – Future of Medicine !?” on 7th November 2012. Organized a Guest Lecture on “An Overview of Inborn Errors of Metabolism” on 23rd February 2013. Organized another CME on “Recent Update on Metal Toxicity: from Biochemistry to Molecular Medicine” on 18th April 2013. Workshop on “Pre-Analytical Errors’ was organized by the Department  and sponsored by Johnson and Johnson Ortho diagnostics Ltd. on 25th June 2013. Training programme on “Avoiding Preanalytical Errors in Blood Gas Testing” organized by Department of Biochemistry and sponsored by Radiometer India Ltd. Conducted on 6th Nov. 2014. Total 50 participants attended the training programme. Participants were staff members of department of Biochemistry, technicians and staff nurses belonging to CCU, NICU, ICCU and SICU wards of our hospital

The Departmental research laboratory is well equipped with latest instruments like

  • UV-spectrophotometer,
  • Top pan balance,
  • electrophoresis & chromatography apparatus
  • distillation apparatus

COMMUNITY SERVICES  BY THE DEPARTMENT

Diabetic Camp: Our laboratory is conducting diabetic camp every  Thursday in collaboration with medicine department. We are processing blood glucose free of cost (Sponsored by Micro Labs Ltd, Bengaluru). More than 2,000 patients are registered under diabetic clinic. On an average every week 50-75 patients attend the diabetic clinic.
