-       Your slot for respective sample analysis will be confirmed through email.
-       If Samples are received without covering letter/DD, the samples will not be analysed.Separate sample should be sent for different analysis.
-       Interpretation of spectra/data is not undertaken normally. In special cases this service can be provided on payment on extra charges.
-       As soon as the analysis is over, the spectra/data along with the receipt / bill will be sent to the users.
-       If you want samples back please mention in your letter.
        Kindly collect your samples back at the time of collecting your data. Samples which are not collected within a week from the date of data collected /sample analysis will be disposed of immediately without any further notice.

Note

As per the guidelines of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), in all publications of research work,  where in the  analytical services of the SAIF have been made use of,  the DST and the SAIF, IIT Patna shall be duly acknowledged.  Kindly send us the publication reference (Journal name/volume number/names of the authors/date of issue of the publication etc) to us.

A list of charges for measurements, as fixed by the Department of Science & Technology, New Delhi, is taken. Please note that:

  • The charges mentioned for analysis of samples are received from users within India only.
  • For abroad users, please contact SAIF by Email directly.
  • Charges are subject to change periodically.
