Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms, those being unicellular (single cell), multicellular (cell colony), or acellular (lacking cells). The goal of the course is the equip the students in diverse aspects of microbiology and make them industry ready. The course is aimed at training the students in diverse practical aspects so that they are well placed after their graduation.

The instruments being used currently:

  • Laminar air flow Units
  • Autoclave
  • Microscopes
  • Weighing Balance
  • Water bath
  • Vortex
  • Refrigerator

Immunology is an important discipline in Medical Science. The diagnostic laboratory provides vital information about the patients testing their blood or serum. Various diseases like allergy, immune deficiency and a range of infectious diseases can be detected by appropriate methods. Choice of right methods would help us to detect infection which is inferred by the presence of antibodies in the patient’s serum or changes in prevalence of different white blood cell types.

The instruments being used currently:

  • Electrophoresis Units
  • Microscopes
  • SDS – PAGE.

This centre is one among the 32 information and demonstration centres instituted by Karnataka State Bioenergy Development Board ( KSBDB) in Karnataka. This centre receives an annual grant of Rs. 7.9 lakhs from KSBDB for the activities. This centre is responsible for the production of biodiesel from various nonedible oil seeds and used cooking oil available in Udupi District, create awareness, disseminate information about biofuels amongst the scientific community, students, farmers and public and give demonstration and provide technical know how about biodiesel production. The centre was established in the year 2011 with a building space of 1200sq.ft.

Objectives :

  • To develop plantation of local breeds of biofuel plants.
  • To conduct research on biofuel processes.
    • The by-products of biodiesel production (cake and glycerol) have commercial application. Oil cake can be used as manure in the farm, whereas some oil cakes (non-toxic) can be used as cattle feed. Glycerol is used in soap making. Production of biodiesel from locally available non- edible oil seeds and used cooking oil gives rise to eco-friendly fuel, adds revenue to the farmers, saves foreign exchange, reduces dependence on fossil fuel and improves rural employment.

      Activities:

      • Awareness camps
      • Workshops/training at BRIDC
      • Exhibitions
      • Research and other activities

      Facilities:

      This centre has a capacity to produce 50 litres of biodiesel per batch which requires about 20-24 working hours. Biodiesel is produced through a chemical reaction called as transesterification. The oil is first extracted through a mechanical expeller. The oil is then treated with methanol at 600C in the presence of sodium hydroxide. Then produced biodiesel is separated and purified for engine use.
      This centre also houses a testing lab for biodiesel testing where major 5 parameters (acid value, viscosity, density, flash point and copper strip corrosion) are tested. Biodiesel can be used in any diesel engine as 10-20% blend with diesel without modification in diesel engine. Biodiesel can be also used in diesel generator sets, tractors, water pumps etc.

Activities:

The use of underutilized agricultural residues is an excellent means for the production of biofuel. Eight different dried raw materials of agricultural origin such as cashew pulp, coffee pulp, coconut leaves, areca nut leaves, cocoa pod shell and mucilage, and non-agricultural residues like Saccharum spontaneum (Kans grass) stem and leaves are being investigated for bioethanol production. Other non-agricultural residues like, non-edible oil seed cakes of Pongamia pinnata, Simarouba glauca, Calophylum inophyllum, Scleropyrum pentandrum, Jatropa curcas and Hevea brasiliensis, as well as biodiesel derived glycerol are being investigated for bioethanol production.

M.Tech in Industrial Biotechnology programme was started in the academic year 2014-15 with an intake of 18 students.

The department is recognized as research center under VTU, Belagavi and 14 research scholars have registered for their doctoral programme.

Talk was organized by ISTE Student chapter on 27th October 2017 at Shambhavi seminar hall by Dr Ajith Kamath, Assistant Professor, Department of Agada Tantra, Alvas Ayurvedic Medical College, Moodbidri. to the students and staff of Biotechnology. Dr Ajith Kamath gave us an insight on “Role of Ayurveda in Cancer Management” where he highlighted on how the incidences of cancer has increased worldwide i.e. 20 times in last 100 years.

The speaker stressed upon

  • Commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide
  • Types and etiology of cancer
  • Origin of cancer
  • Clinical symptoms of cancer

And how Ayurveda can be a help in the treatment of cancer by anti-angiogenesis, apoptosis or by destroying stem cells where he stressed on triphala, Dashamoola, guduchi, Bhumyamalaki, Kalamegh etc. He gave an insight on various organ specific treatments like vasa, kantaki for lung cancer, sthouneyaka for uterus cancer, Matulunga and haridra for breast cancer, Bilwa and maricha for colon cancer, and guggulu for prostate cancer.
He also gave few recommendations to prevent cancer and briefed upon recent research advancements in the field of cancer management using Ayurveda.
His concluding remarks were “Ayurveda is an effective system currently and could be a promising solution for cancer in future days” and “Ayurvedic medicines can be beneficial as a supplementary to modern medicine and can work significantly if complications arise from chemotherapy or radiotherapy”. We have immense gratitude towards him for sharing with us his knowledge and hope to have many more interactive sessions with him.

The activities of the BRIDC is managed by Mr. Santhosh Poojary (Scientific Assistant), Mr.Manjunath Rao (Technical Assistant) and Mr.Vinay Shetty (Lab Assistant).

BRIDC is responsible for the production of biodiesel from oil source available in Udupi District. It creates awareness and disseminates information about Bio-energy amongst the scientific community, students, farmers, general public and government officials. The centre conducts awareness camps for schools, colleges and farmers to disseminate the knowledge of biodiesel production and the important feedstocksources. Planting Biofuel saplings during World Environment Day (June 5) and World Biofuel Day (August 10) is carried out by BRIDC every year. The main intention of BIDC is to contribute to the socio-economic development of the nation by demonstrating the entire Bioenergy Value Chain.

The BRIDC, has a capacity of producing 50litre of biodiesel per batch which requires about 20-24 working hours. The oil from non-edible oil seeds is extracted through a mechanical oil expeller. Waste cooking oils can also be used for Biodiesel production. The produced biodiesel isused as 10-20% blend (B10-B20) with petro-Diesel. BRIDC also houses a testing lab for Biodiesel quality testing, where major fuel propertiesare tested

At NMAMIT, we are continuously using Biodiesel blends (B10-B20) in our college vehicles from the past 3 years. Also we aresupplying Biodiesel to GM Vidyaniketan Public School-Brahmavar to run their school buses. Biodiesel blend of up to 20% along with mineral Diesel can be used in any Diesel engine without any hardware modification. B20 and lower blends can help fulfil environmental and energy security needs without sacrificing operating performance. Biodiesel can also be used in Boilers, Diesel generators, tractors, pump sets etc.

Biodiesel has a significant amount of natural lubricity and adding in levels as low as 5% can improve lubricity up to 65%, thereby reducing engine ware and tare. Biodiesel is much safer than petro diesel with a flash point over 1500C. Importantly,toxic emissions such asHydro Carbons (HC), Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Particulate matter (smoke) reduces significantly for biodiesel when compared to conventional Diesel. Biodiesel has excellent cleansing properties. In some cases, the use of petro-Diesel leaves a deposit at the bottom of fuel lines, tanks, and delivery systems over time. The use of Biodiesel can dissolve this sediment and hence change of fuel filters may be expected at the initial usage stages in buses.
