Ashoka University provides appropriate facilities for research ranging from single-molecule studies to biomolecule and organismal studies. Our laboratories for undergraduates are completely equipped with advanced instrumentation that promotes unique open scientific culture. Ashoka has an ‘open lab’ culture that follows no boundaries between individual labs. This further inculcates scientific and intellectual interactions amongst academic researchers that paves way to collaborative approaches to address various scientific questions.
The insect facility is equipped with rearing and growth chambers, microscope stations for sorting and typing insects, piped CO2 plate anesthesia dissection and electrophysiology rigs. Dedicated fly-lab facility is also available with all required infrastructure.
The fish facility facilitates the work of researchers who wish to utilize fish as a model for any kind of research pertaining to daily care of animals, aquarium system and marine life.
Plant research facility at Ashoka has an environmentally controlled greenhouse (fan and pad cooling system) and a shade house along with plant growth chambers. The plant facility provides all materials required for undergraduate experiments and research with different plant and insect species. Ashoka’s animal tissue culture lab is equipped with CO2 Incubator, BSL-2 Cabinets, Inverted Microscopes, High-Speed Centrifuge and all necessary facility for research.
The labs are fully equipped with advanced instruments for analytical and imaging facilities including Real – Time PCR, preparative Instrumentation Facility, High – Speed Centrifuge, growth Chamber, FCS, Biosafety Cabinets, Bioanalyzer, Nanodrop, FPLC, Rotospin, Cytospin, Sonicator and UV – Crosslinkers Microscopy facilities consists of Inverted Microscope, Confocal Microscope, Stereo Microscope, FRAP and Ablation Systems, Cam, RoHS, PRIMEBSI and SCMOS.
The Science faculty has Laser Optics Lab with Optical Breadboards with Passive Vibration isolated Support Microscope, Soft Matter Research Lab With Fluorescence Polarized Microscope, Spin-Coating and Benchtop Rubbing Machine, Noise Fundamentals Apparatus, Basic Telescope for Astrophysics activities, Dedicated Departmental Servers, High-Voltage Amplifier, Multimeter and Oscilloscope which are regularly used by students and faculty for their research.
The University also has a fully equipped Media lab, Archeology, Psychology and EVS labs. We have also recently set up HPC clusters with in-house servers to aid in high-speed computing across disciplines.
