About RITL


Early in the development of the University in 1960’s, the necessity for developing a Radiotracer Laboratory was realised due to the unique importance of Radiations and Radioisotopes in modern agricultural and basic research. The Radiations and Isotopic Tracers Laboratory (R.I.T.L.) was constructed under the guidance of BARC, DAE, (Govt. of India) in the College of Basic Sciences & Humanities and recognized as a ‘B’- class laboratory by A.E.R.B. (Govt. of India) for handling/use of radioisotopes.

Other Details

The laboratory functions primarily as a Central Research Facility for the university. It has emerged as an active centre for inter-disciplinary teaching and research involving radioisotopes in basic, agricultural, & veterinary sciences, as also in engineering and biotechnology and
  • To procure radioisotopes and radio-labelled compounds for the users.
  • To plan, guide & monitor the radio-tracers experiments.
  • To manage the radioactive waste and radiation safety of users.
  • To maintain liaison between the University departments and also with the Division of Radiological Protection, Atomic Energy Regulatory Board(Government of India), and Board of Radiations and Isotopes Technology (BRIT, D.A.E.) as far as use of Radioisotopes is concerned.
  • To assist the university scientists in the planning of their research proposals and execution of the research projects in which the radioisotopes or use of radiations are involved.
