In the Instrumentation Lab, students got an exposure of highly sophisticated instruments like HPLC, UV, FT-IR and Gas chromatography. The third area was Microbiology Lab in which they learnt about different culture medias, LAF, aseptic room and fumigation.This visit would be beneficial for the students to remember the studies in a better way and offer better opportunities for learning. A laboratory is not a contest whose object is to get the right answer but the purpose is to learn how to gain knowledge, how to observe and to learn the meaning of what happens. When they observe various things and carry out different experiments, their reasoning skills are honed and they start thinking deeply on those theories and concepts.
