    Background: The Department of Bio-Chemistry has established in the year 1972 headed by the then R.O. M.R.Uma, Research Officer(Bio-Chemistry).

    Now the Department of Biochemistry Laboratory has been redefined with high quality time tested, durable steel lab furnitures, consists of modular table with black granite top and well equipped automatic analyzer (Bio-System BA 400) capable of testing 400 samples per hour producing accurate results.

    It is great boon to the Siddha drug Research Project activities of this Institution as well service to the General Public.

    The quality of the tests, regents and instruments have been thoroughly checked and monitored periodically. Participating in the CMC VELLORE QUALITY CONTROL STANDARDS ASSESSMENT PROGRAMMES among the reputed Bio-Chemical inter-laboratories.The CMC Vellore has appreciated the assessment of our Bio-Chemical standard. The Department has involved many research oriented projects samples of Ph.D Schloars of National Institute of Siddha (NIS), Govt.Siddha Medical college and other institution all over the research institution and colleges.
