Biomedical Metrology

Biomedical Metrology Group is actively engaged in the following activities:
  • Development, operation and maintenance of biomedical equipment standards
  • Synthesis and Characterization of Electroactive materials for Biosensing applications
  • Research and Development on “Dynamic studies of electroactive materials for Biomolecular Recognition in Miniaturized system”
  • Providing calibration services through dissemination of traceability of physical parameters to accredited testing laboratories and other stakeholders in healthcare sector
  • Promoting and Strengthening quality system in the country through conducting time-to-time awareness program, workshop and hand on trainings etc. among various stakeholders
  • Synthesis and characterization of novel electroactive materials like inorganic/organic hybrid materials including electro-optic liquid crystals, conducting polymers, dendrimers, hierarchical structures, nanomaterials, quantum dots etc. for the biomolecular sensing.
  • Establishing structure-property relations for biomolecular transduction using electrochemical, low ac frequency impedance, optical, opto-electronic, and electro-optic studies
  • Design and fabrication of highly sensitive bio-platform for the detection of biomarkers for chronic diseases, water and food borne infections

Biomedical metrology group CSIR-NPL is working towards establishment and realization of National Standards for biomedical metrology. The group is actively engaged in the design, development and dissemination of biomedical equipment standards compatible to International standards for biomedical instrumentation. Group has successfully completed numerous sponsored/ inhouse projects in the field of Biomedical Instrumentation/ Metrology.

Calibration Capability of Defibrillator and Defibrillator Analyser
Group has established an apex level calibration facility for defibrillator analyzer by installing a set-up of a primary standard of defibrillator. This NPLI facility is the “first-of-its kind” in India to cater the needs of quality assurance in the area of healthcare. Biomedical Metrology has been working in establishing biomedical equipment standards as per the New Medical device rules and policies. In this regard, we have established an apex level calibration facility for defibrillator analyzer by installing a set-up of a primary standard of defibrillator with its physical parameters traceable to national standards (Schematic shown in Fig. 1). Defibrillator works by supply monobasic /biphasic pulse to patient with energy levels in range of 50J to 360J. This calibration facility is providing services to various stakeholders with effect from 1st September 2018.
