The biology laboratory is a modern research infrastructure, providing a broad range of biological and biochemical techniques with in-depth practical training offered by experienced staff. Important routine work is on microbial and molecular analyses and biological sample preparation in general.
The chemistry laboratory is where students experience the dynamic field of chemistry firsthand. Modern technology has transformed the chemistry lab and allows students at all levels to explore the molecular world in ways once accessible only to premier research scientists. Knowledge university – Pharmacy department chemistry lab courses encourage inquiry-based critical thinking rather than rote direction-following.
Main focus of the laboratory is the field of innovative dosage forms, including formulation- and process-optimization activities. These forms include extrudates, medicinal films, micro- and nanoparticles, etc. and result in hard gelatin capsules, emulsions, suspensions, parenteral formulations. In addition to the physicochemical evaluation of these dosage forms, special attention is paid to their biopharmaceutical properties obtained after ophthalmic, nasal, pulmonary, oral or parenteral administration. Stability research and packaging studies complete the evaluation of the drug products. Furthermore, the more conventional dosage forms, e.g. like tablets are also evaluated.
