Animal House

Drugs and pharmaceuticals need to be tested on animals prior to human administration. Therefore, a Pharmacy college need to maintain a well equipped Animal House Facility for enabling the students to study the effect of drugs on animal models. In line with this requirement, our College maintains a well equipped Animal House, set up and maintained as per the guidelines of CPCSEA (Committee for the Purpose of Control and Supervision on Experiments on Animals). The facility is manned by well trained staff and supervised by duly qualified and experienced Faculty members. The area is used for breeding and carrying out experiments required for regular UG and PG practicals as well as specialized experiments conducted by students for their PG research work (Projects). The animal house is backed by a well equipped Pharmacology laboratory. Experiments are conducted and used / dead animals are disposed off strictly as per the guidelines of CPCSEA. Our Animal house maintains several species of animals such as mice, rats, guineapigs, and Rabbits. The facility comprises of wash area, animal feed store, animal cages, etc. The animals are segregated in separate areas for breeding and experimentation. The animals being used for different experiments are separated and properly labeled and their lists are maintained. Students need to take prior approval from the IAEC (Institutional Animal Ethics Committee) for all experiments involving animals as per the CPCSEA guidelines.
