Sophisticated Instrument Training

Sophisticated Instrument Training

Department of Pharmacy has organized  Sophisticated Instrument Training on Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ASE™ 150 (Accelerated Solvent Extractor)Instrument. This session was organized for Faculty, Lab Staff and some B.Pharm. VII sem Students. By this type of activity participants will learn about the  theoretical as well as practical aspects of the Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ASE™ 150 (Accelerated Solvent Extractor)Instrument. During the demonstration Mr. Rakesh Kumar ( Sr. Engineer, India Tech. Support Manager, ASE Specialist,  Thermo Fisher Scientific India Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai ) and Mr. Sharad Gupta (  Sr. Engineer,  Thermo Fisher Scientific India Pvt. Ltd., Indore Head Quarter, Indore ) explained  principle, Instrumentation and working mechanism of Sophisticated Instruments. Accelerated solvent extraction is a method for extracting organic compounds from solid, semisolid and herbal samples with liquid solvents. Dionex ASE systems use conventional liquid solvents at elevated temperatures and pressures to increase the efficiency of the extraction process. Increased temperature accelerates the extraction kinetics, and elevated pressure keeps the solvent below its boiling point, enabling safe, rapid extractions. By the help of the ASE-150, the extraction can perform with 20-30 minutes and less use of solvent. during the demonstration, Mr. Sharad Gupta performed the extraction of Ocimum sanctum (Tulsi). At the end, participants were able to answer about the basics of Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ASE™ 150 (Accelerated Solvent Extractor) Instrument.
