Pharmaceutics is a branch of pharmacy field that carries the impression of pharmacy profession. In general it encompasses the areas that involve designing, formulation and presenting a therapeutically useful chemical entity in a most appropriate drug delivery system such as tablets, capsules, syrups, etc. The comprehensive study of this subject necessitates integration of physical, chemical and biological principles, as applicable to all the components of drug delivery systems. In the present scenario, the discovery of various drug entities has enabled the development of new drug delivery system, advanced production processes and the latest machinery for manufacture of superior quality products. This subject along with its related subjects is well distributed in the B. Pharm. Curriculum, which is shown below.
Pharmaceutics department has laboratories namely
- Pharmaceutics Lab 1 (Basic Lab)
- Pharmaceutical Lab 2 (Dosage form Development Lab)
- Pharmaceutics Lab 3 (Advanced Instrumental Lab)
All the laboratories having good ventilation and lighting facilities along with continuous water supply. The laboratories are designed efficiently for proper storage of chemicals and glassware. These laboratories are well equipped with the latest instruments, and appliances, which are listed below.
In order to achieve the mission and vision of the Department of pharmaceutics, the following objectives obtain priority in the departmental activities:
