Sophisticated Analytical Instrument Facility (SAIF), formerly known as the Regional Sophisticated Instrumentation Centre (RSIC), was established at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, in the year 1976, with the support of the Department of Science & Technology, Government of India, New Delhi.
SAIF, IIT Bombay houses a variety of major analytical instruments which are operated and maintained by a dedicated and qualified group of Scientists and Engineers. It is an integral part of IIT Bombay, and operates with an "open access policy". The result of this policy is that all can benefit from the services of SAIF.
SAIF does not operate to compete with any commercial laboratories but, it has a vision,
"to be amongst the top Analytical Instrument Laboratories in the world".
