  1. Pharmacological recording instruments

Various in vitro and in vivo instruments were used routinely. These included isolated organ instruments (for smooth and striated muscles) with isotonic and isometric transducers e.g. routine use included evaluation of drugs and plant extracts on gastrointestinal muscles, uterine muscles, tracheal muscles, heart muscles, diaphragmtphrenic preparation etc. In vivo experiments included blood pressure, antiinflammatory, diabetes experiments etc. Instruments used were from Cambridge, Lectromed and Hasso manufacturers.

  1. Spectroscopy

This included visible, ultraviolet, atomic absorption (flame and flameless) and infrared spectrometers (instruments used were Philips and Perkin Elmers).

  1. Miscellaneous

Ultracentrifugation, radioimmunoassays, thin layer chromatography, clinical chemistry analysers (discrete and non discrete, open and closed systems), flame photometers, ELISA techniques and ion selecting electrodes were routinely used.

Extraction techniques

Very long experience in extraction of biological samples (urine, blood and hair) from different animals (camels, horses, falcons and dogs) as well as from humans. These include liquid-liquid, supported liquid, precipitation, solid phase extraction using different sorbents. Extractions were performed on manual and automated machines (Gilson, Zymark and Biotage Extrahera) as well as on positive manifold systems.

Teaching and training experience

I have taught various courses of pharmacology, toxicology, analytical chemistry, instrumental courses e.g. mass spectrometry high resolution mass spectrometry and biostatistics. Teaching and training included theoretical and practical aspects to undergraduates, post graduates and laboratory technicians .

Supervision of postgraduate students

I have independently supervised and guided the research programme that led to the award of Masters and Ph.D. degrees to several candidates. I have also contributed in the research plans in an intellectual and conceptual manner and participated in the oral examinations of students for several degrees in Master of Veterinary Science.
