There are number of educational institutions and industries surrounding this local area, but no significant facilities are available in the surrounding where academicians, researchers, technologists can get together and share their views & experiences about new techniques and applications of various instruments in research under one roof. In order to cater the needs of all the departments for sophisticated instruments at our campus, Central Instrumentation Laboratory was established in April 2011.

CIL is located in the premises of central workshop. All students, researchers and faculty members from various science and engineering departments of the university and its affiliated colleges are free to avail the services of CIL as per the guidelines laid by the Committee of the CIL. These guidelines are regularly reviewed from time to time. While outside users from Industries, Research & Development Organizations and other educational institutions can be allowed to avail this facility with permission as per guidelines.


  1. Objective
    There are number of educational institutions and industries surrounding this local area, but no significant facilities are available in the surrounding where academicians, researchers, technologists can get together and share their views about recent development in instrumentation with a broad objective to trains/update students & researches about advances in instrumentation. We at CIL
  • Carry out the analysis of samples received from researchers working in various educational and research institutions, industries, labs etc.
  • Provide facilities to researchers to carry out measurements on sophisticated instruments not available in their own institutions.
  • Organize short term courses/workshops/training on the use and application of various instruments for the benefit of research scholars, teachers and personnel from other laboratories, universities and industries.
  • Train the scholars about latest sophisticated instruments available in research field.

6.      Optimum utilization of CIL 

The main focus of university has to be Research & development programmers’. Research scholars are always free to access the instrument available in CIL. Students of PG courses like M.Sc., M. Tech can utilize the machines / equipments and infrastructure generated under CIL at regular interval at different levels of their course/program.

Further CIL is planning to increase the utility and that may be achieved by:

–       One short theory paper of instruments may be introduced in the curriculum of M.Sc./ M.Tech./ Pre Ph.D students.

–       A practical slot of 4-6 hours may be allotted to the PG/M.Tech./ Pre Ph.D students just like workshop hour for B.Tech. Students.

–       Internal orientation programmers for Lab technician/ assistants belong to B.Tech. Courses may be organized with regular interval.

7.  Rates for outside scholars/ industries:


Sr. No. Instrument Type of Service Charges(INR)
1. F. T. Infra Red Spectrophotometer Absorption/ Transmission Spectra -100/- per sample
2. Thermal Analyzer (TGA/DSC/DTA) Heat Flow/ Weight Loss/ Differential Curve -100/- per sample
3. Impedance Analyzer A.C./D.C. Conductivity data -100/- per sample
4. Ultraviolet-Visible Spectrophotometer (borrowed from Chemistry Dept.) UV/VIS spectra

8.3 One day workshop on “”Lab Governance

  A one day workshop on “Lab Governance” was organized on 28/06/2013 by Central Instrumentation Laboratory, DCRUST, Murthal. Dr. S.K. Varshney, Scientist ‘F’, DST, Delhi was the inaugural speaker of the event. He presented his views on maintenance, calibration of instruments and strongly state that wrong Calibrations can destroy all results taken from various studies and their impact on society is unforgettable. The workshop was inaugurated by Sh. R. K. Arora, Registrar, DCRUST, Murthal. He emphasized on importance of Experimental Science which is backbone of research in every area and administration is all providing their support for such kind workshop in university. The coordinator of CIL Dr. Satish Khasa explain the motive of workshop i.e. “Lab governance”  and explain how we can improve our skills and good lab practices to in-rich our research/ regular labs.  Dr. Prem Chand, Director P. M. Institute of Engineering & Technology, Kami shares his views on advance research techniques and told that no university/ institute can represent him at the global level until they have good research facilities’ and DCRUST Murthal is perusing this at good pace. In the workshop Dr. Manoj Duhan,  Electronics and Communication Engineering, DCRUST, Murthal motivated the technical staff by his innovative lecture on ‘Ethics in Lab’. All the participants were given demonstrations & practical experiences of various instruments in different laboratories.
