Cattle Genetics & Breeding
This laboratory is mainly working for identification of genetic markers for production, reproduction and growth traits in Frieswal cattle and to asses the possibility of their incorporation in selection program. All the equipments such as Nano-drop spectrophotometer, Gel documentation system, Electronic shaker with temp control, Digital Water bath, Autoclave, Biological Incubator, pH meter, Western blot apparatus, Ice flake machine, PCR machine, Real Time PCR machine, Laminar flow hood, Analytical electric balance, Circulating water bath, Gel electrophoresis systems (vertical and horizontal), Refrigerated high speed centrifuge, Deep freezers (-200C & -400C), Ultra low deep freezer (-800C), UV Cross linker, Millipore water purification system, Vacuum concentrator etc. are available in laboratory to carry out routine research in the area of Molecular Genetics and Breeding.
 
Cattle Nutrition & Management
Animal Nutrition laboratory was established in February 1991 along with Semen Freezing Laboratory under CIRC at the Military Farm, Meerut Cantt. Presently, it is functioning at Grass Farm Road Meerut Cantt. Animal Nutrition laboratory is engaged in conducting research work on nutritional requirements, feed conversion efficiency and studying effect of nutrition on semen quality of Frieswal cattle. The laboratory is equipped with all routine facilities for performing nutritional analysis of samples and with modern instruments viz. Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer for mineral estimation and UV-visible spectrophotometer for performing specific analytical work etc.
 
Cattle Physiology & Reproduction
This laboratory is involved in the characterization and differentiation of embryonic stem cells in cattle & buffalo. It is also involved in the treatment of anoestrus in Frieswal cattle. Stereo & inverted microscope, multi gas incubator, embryo freezer and various types of catheters for embryo collection and transfer are available in laboratory. The semen freezing laboratory has been provided with the state of the art facilities to produce and store quality frozen semen. The laboratory is ISO 9001:2000 certified and has gadgets like automatic straw Filling & Sealing Machine, Programmable Biological Freezer, Automatic Straw Packaging and Counting Machine, Straw Printing Machine etc. A group of highly dedicated specialists are engaged in the job of semen production. Semen collection, processing and freezing are done under strict sterile environment to meet the international standards of quality. Frozen semen is subjected to rigorous quality assessment through a battery of tests before its distribution. Quality of the semen is never compromised and receives top priority.
