DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT LABORATORY Design and Development is a continuous activity at the Institute and it is purely based on the emerging needs of the Instrument industry. The main objective behind the Institute’s design and development work is to transfer the technical know-how developed to the instrument manufacturers or entrepreneurs on nonexclusive basis. (The development work at the IDEMI’s above laboratory has, therefore, attracted many units and entrepreneurs and has resulted in a good rapport between the Institute and various manufacturing units.) The laboratory normally undertakes the development work in consultation with the users as well as the manufacturers so that the right type of product is developed which is commercially viable too. Institute’s achievements in the design and development field and details on prototypes developed are published through Newsletter and displays at exhibitions apart from individual contacts / communications. Entrepreneurs and Manufacturers are always approaching the Institute for any design and development assistance that may be required by them from time to time. The Department of Scientific & Industrial Research (DSIR) of Government of India recognizes the Institute as a Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (SIRO).
