This lab demonstrates the principles learnt in the analytical chemistry course. The lab is divided into 14 sessions that demonstrate chemical analysis using titration and the principles of measurements in science.
Examples of the experiments include the analysis of some drugs according to pharmacopeial methods such as the determination of aluminum and magnesium hydroxides in antacids, determination of iron content in medicines using reduction-oxidation titrations.
- Titration set ups.
- Ph meters.
- Analytical balances.
- Water baths.
- Various glassware.
Instrumental Analysis Lab
This lab is an application of the theoretical materials in the instrumental analysis course. Students conduct the analysis of various medicinal substances using compendial methods, such as the analysis of vitamin B12 content, measurement of glucose levels, determination of the acidity constant of weak acids and measurement of ph.
- Flame Atomic Emission.
- High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC).
The students learn how to prepare various pharmaceutical dosage forms such as solutions, suspensions, emulsions, ointments and creams, suppositories and capsules.
- Compounding Tools : Mortar and pestles, ointment tiles, basins, a various glassware.
- Manual Capsule Filling Machines.
- Suppository Molds.
- Analytical And Electronic Balances.
- Manual Tableting Machine.
This lab aims to provide pharmacy college students the knowledge to recognize medicinal plants micro and macroscopically which they need them for their works in hospitals, ministry of health (drug registration department), and useful in the pharmaceutical industry. This lab also aims to teach students some of practical skills in phytochemical extraction and identification of medicinal plants by many instruments.
- Microwave apparatus for the extraction of essential aromatic oil.
- Freeze dryer.
