Department of Pharmaceutics
Department of Pharmaceutics
It generally covers the areas in which a therapeutically useful chemical entity is designed, formulated and presented in the most appropriate drug delivery system, such as tablets, capsules, syrups, etc. Pharmaceutics is committed to making medication administration compliant and effective for the patient. In the current scenario, the discovery of new drug entities has made it possible to develop new drug delivery systems, innovative manufacturing methods and state-of-the-art equipment for the manufacture of high-quality drugs that provide a wide range of research and development in this area. This subject is well distributed in the B.Pharm along with its associated subjects.
Pharmaceutics is the pharmacy discipline that deals with the process of converting a new chemical entity (NCE) or old substance into a drug to be used by patients safely and effectively. A specialist discipline of microbiology, pharmaceutical microbiology is concerned with the use of microorganisms in pharmaceutical production and with maintaining control of contamination.
Physical pharmacy and Biopharmaceutics are the study of the relationship between the physical chemical and biological properties and the fate of a drug in vivo, in order to design an optimal dosage type. Such studies are important for the design of drugs and drug materials.
Biopharmaceutics involves the study of different factors such as biological, physicochemical and formulation aspects that influence the therapeutic efficiency of a drug.
The undergraduate pharmaceutics department has four laboratories namely
Pharmaceutics I, Pharmaceutics II and Pharmaceutics III.
All the laboratories are adequately spaced, providing 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, which are described below.
