Main Area of Activity

Sophisticated Analytical Instrument Facility (SAIF) has highly sophisticated and modern analytical equipments. The facility offers a wide range of analytical services viz. analytical testing/ method development / qualitative and quantitative analysis/ elemental analysis/ structure determination of small and large molecules. SAIF services are offered to both internal and external users. The services are availed by about 250 internal and 500 external users annually. More than 80% of the external users comprise researchers from universities and colleges. Researchers from national laboratories and industries constitute the rest. Besides providing analytical service, the SAIF scientists are also involved in R&D activity of the institute with several ongoing projects. Students are also working for their Ph.D. degree utilizing modern analytical equipments in SAIF. In addition to the above, we offer contract research options.


Short term Trainings: SAIF offers training programs to motivate interested post graduate students and research fellows with an opportunity to spend valuable time in gaining practical experience in the field chemical and biological sciences.


Workshops: Awareness programme are being held every year in SAIF-CDRI to keep the users informed about the scientific advancements in above areas.
