Natural/synthetic drug screening

 

Natural products have been the main members of cancer chemotherapy for the at least last decades. This laboratory is concerned about all experimental works associated to the broadcast and elucidation of novel native compounds extracted from nature and spotlights on the medicinal plants with antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-cancer properties. Another goal of the Nanobiomaterial lab is assessment of pharmaceutical properties of pure extracted compounds through different cellular and molecular pathways. The laboratory is also fill the gaps between traditional medicine and high-tech sciences through formulation of natural pure products in different pharmaceutical tagged vehicles such as Solid Lipid Nanoparticles, Magnetic Nanoparticle, Nanostructured Lipid Carrier and so on for targeted drug delivery. In this lab, the biotechnological works, which improve the quality and quantity of biomaterials, is also set up.

 

 

 

Technical approach

Extraction of natural products

  • Natural product extraction using dry and wet methods

  • Essential oil extraction using Clevenger apparatus

  • Evaporator rotary

 

Purification of natural products

  • Analytical and preparative- Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC)

  • Vacuum Liquid Chromatography (VLC)

  • Column Chromatography (CC)

  • Semi-Preparative High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (Semi-Prep HPLC) 

 

Identification of natural products

  • UV-Visible Spectrometry

  • H and C NMR (in collaboration with other research centers)

     

Improving the quality and quantity of biomaterials
  • Shaker Incubator
  • Class I and II box hoods
 
Lipidic Nanoparticle synthesizing
  • Ultra-homogenizer
  • Dialysis 
 
Assessment of natural products properties
  • Anti-oxidant activity assay (DPPH)
  • Anti-microbial activity assays (In collaboration with Molecular Medicine & Therapy Lab)
  • Anti-angiogenesis activity assay (Chorioallantoic Membrane Angiogenesis Assay
