Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analyser

Make & Model: Netzsch DMA242E
Location: FRP Composite III, MM Dept.
Instrument Incharge: Prof. Bankim Chandra Ray
In-charge Email Id: bcray@nitrkl.ac.in
Instrument Status: Non-Functional

Specification: • Test temperature: -160 to 550 °C • Load range: up to 12 ± 12 N • Test fixtures: Tensile, Compression, Flexural, Single and dual cantilever • Test type: Standard DMA, Creep & Recovery, Stress relaxation

Principle: DMTA records a material’s temperature-dependent visco-elastic properties and determines its modulus of elasticity and damping values by applying an oscillating force to the sample.

Application: • To identify the glassy and rubbery states of polymeric materials • Long-term creep performance of the materials • Can be used to predict the life time of the materials at a given temperature and stress

Flow Cytometer

Make & Model: 1. BD FACS Aria III cell sorter 2. BD LSR Fortessa cell analyzer
Location: Tissue Engineering Lab-II (stem cell culture)
Instrument Incharge: Prof.(Ms.) Krishna Pramanik
In-charge Email Id: kpr@nitrkl.ac.in
Instrument Status: Non-Functional

Specification: Four lasers (633/561/488/375 nm), 20 parameters, 18 fluorescent and 2 scatter, Up to 70,000 events per second, Four-way sorting, Sample input: Polystyrene/ polypropylene, microtubes, Adjustable temperature control (4, 20, 37 and 42oC)

Principle: Flow cytometer and florescenceactivated cell sorter (FACS) are laserbased equipment that allow simultaneous analysis of multiple parameters of cells and sorting of different types of cells basing on their characters. Cells are suspended in a buffer medium and passed under a laser beam along with sheath fluid for cell counting, morphometry, immunophenotyping, biomarker detection, cell cycle analysis and sorting. The uniqueness of the flow cytometer lies in its ability to analyse several thousands of cells within a second.

Application: Immunophenotyping of cells, Florescence-based characterization of cells Cell sorting,

Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy

Make & Model: Make:Perkin Elmer(India) Pvt. Ltd. Model: Spectrum Two FT-IR(Perkin Elmer IRL 1600300) Sl No 95277
Location: SPONCOM Lab
Instrument Incharge: Prof. Devidas Sahebraoji Nimaje
In-charge Email Id: dsnimaje@nitrkl.ac.in
Instrument Status: Functional

Specification: 21 CFR Part 11 Compatible-Yes, Depth-30.0 cm, Detector Type- DTGS, Height- 21.0 cm, Operating Range - 5 - 45 °C, Portable, Wave Length - 8300 - 350 cm-1, Weight- 13.0 kg Width 45.0 cm

Principle: FTIR relies on the fact that the most molecules absorb light in the infra-red region of the electromagnetic spectrum. This absorption corresponds specifically to the bonds present in the molecule. The frequency range are measured as wave numbers typically over the range 4000 – 600 cm-1.

Application: To get spectral analysis of sample functional group.
