Welcome to SAIF

The Sophisticated Analytical Instruments Facility (SAIF), formerly known as RSIC, was established by Department of Science and Technology (DST). The purpose of establishing these centers is to provide data collection facility from sophisticated analytical equipments to scientific community for their advanced research with nominal charges. The SAIF facility at IIEST Shibpur has started its journey recently on 2016. As a first installment to set up SAIF facility at IIEST Shibpur, three major instruments namely, Single Crystal X-ray Diffractometer, NMR, and High Resolution Mass Spectrometer have been approved by DST. The Single Crystal X-ray Diffractometer has already been installed at IIESTS and running successfully.

  • data collection facility

    To provide data collection facility to the samples received from different Institutes/Universities/National Labs/Colleges/Industries other than IIESTS.

  • develop capability

    To acquire and develop capability for preventive maintenance and repair of sophisticated instruments

  • short term courses

    To organize short term courses/workshops on the use and application of various instruments and analytical techniques

  • Trainning

    To train technicians for maintenance and operation of sophisticated instruments to undertake design and development of instruments/accessories of existing instruments.
