Facilities & Services

Insectarium

At Present the centre has one insectorium which was developed before 19 years. Here cyclic colony of three genus of mosquitoes i.e. Aedes aegypti ( LV strain), Anopheles stephensi and Culex quinquefasciatus maintained. The reared mosquito species were used in insecticide susceptibility status test, larvicidal bioassay plant extract bioassay test.The different plant extract having larviciding properties tested in our insectorium by our scientist and scientist from other Institute also send their material for testing. Cyclic development of Brugia malayi L3 developed and different aspects of and immunological studies were carried out by our scientist of the Institute. The insectorium was used for giving training to different persons time to time.

Under the project two laboratories have been established with dedicated back-up from 10 KV on line UPS with NKN internet facility for conducting genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic analysis. The centre provides support and training to research scholars, scientists and medical faculties in the cutting-edge of Biomedical Informatics on diseases of national interest.



National Reference Laboratory TB
  • Monitoring and QC to 10 states since 2013: Odisha, West Bengal and North East States
  • Completion of BSL-3 laboratory
  • Accreditation for FL DST by MGIT.
  • Strong collaboration with state RNTCP
  • Providing technical support for establishment of 127 new CBNAAT lab in all the 10 states and monitoring their monthly performance.


ICMR Virology Network Lab. (Gr.I)

The Viral Diagnostic Laboratory (Grade I) of Biosafety Level-2 was established in the year 2010,as a part of ICMR’s Virology network laboratories to create viral diagnostic capacity which was lacking in deferent parts of the country & to enhance research activities on important viral diseases in this region. Such a facility was felt essential to provide immediate diagnosis to suspected viral diseases emerging as epidemics and pandemics raising public health concern. Pandemic Influenza A/H1N1/2009 investigation is an example of this for which the centre acted as the regional reference laboratory for the state of Odisha.
