Physical Instrumentation Division

Physical Instrumentation Division (PID) is one of the divisions of BCSIR Laboratories, Dhaka. In order to conduct accurate and delicate result, good instrument is necessary. The main works of PID are maintenance, repairing, servicing, calibration and installation of scientific equipment & electronic instrument. Scientists/Engineers of this division also engaged with R&D works. Besides these, this division has other important activities like: physical properties analysis, photomicrography, offering computer training and software development etc.

This division has 04(four) sections:

  1. Repair, Services, Calibration Section
  2. Design and Fabrication Section
  3. Physical Properties and Testing Section
  4. Optical Instrument Section.

Other Activities/services:

  1. Repairing, Servicing, Maintenance, Calibration and Installation of Scientific/laboratory equipment:

R&D activities are solely dependent on sound instrument facilities. The Scientists/Engineers of this division are capable of repairing, maintenance, installation and calibration of scientific/laboratory, biomedical and agricultural equipment.

Aim of this work is to repair or brought into working condition of defective/out of ordered instruments which will minimize the purchasing of new instruments. As a result a good amount of foreign currency will be saved.

During the period from 1st July, 2014 to 30th June 2017 services were provided to 131 laboratory/scientific equipment (such as: Sterilizer, Temperature humidity control chamber, Orbital Shaker, Autoclave, Digital multi-meter, Digital Balance, Oil free Air Compressor of AAS, Digester, Centrifuge, Relay, Boiler, Stabilizer, Blender, Autoclave machine, Chiller, Computer, Printer, Furnace, Timer, Water bath, UPS (On-line and Off-line), Hotplate, Oven, Digester, Aspirator, Vacuum pump, Magnetic stirrer, Heating mental, Water distillation plant, Photo voltaic, Photometer, Silicon graphics (workstation), Muffle furnace etc.)
