Currently our ICP-OES Instrument is under maintenance hence we are not accepting any samples for analysis until further notice.


FT-Raman Instrument is now available for analysis.

Update on Payment

From 01.04.2023 onwards DD will not be accepted.


Instrument is now available for analysis and characterisation.


Currently in the Truspec Micro analyser(organic CHNSO module) only CHS can be done. Nitrogen detector is not working and Oxygen module requires maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience caused..


New GC-MS (Single Quad) is installed. The instrument is now available for analysis and characterisation.


Internal users are requested to provide sample along with the EPR Quartz tube as well as Liquid Nitrogen for any measurement in the ESR spectrometer in SAIF/IITM. The exact dimensions and material of the quartz EPR tube can be had from Ms. A. Varalakshmi (044 2257 4916) or (044 2257 5926).


Users are requested to take back the remaining /recovered samples within 1 week from the date of receipt of the result; otherwise these samples will be discarded without further notice.

However, the excess amount may be adjusted against future analyses by the same user or another user from the same organization following a written request by Email or hard copy.

About SAIF

    The Sophisticated Analytical Instruments Facility (SAIF), formerly known as RSIC, was established by Department of Science and Technology (DST). This is the first among the seven RSIC's established subsequently by DST. The purpose of establishing these centres is to provide data collection facility from sophisticated analytical equipments to scientific community for their advanced research with nominal charges. The facility has grown into a major centre for spectral measurements, molecular and crystal structure determination and materials characterization.
