CAMRAB Laboratory (Babcock University) furnished by inqaba biotec™ West Africa

The Center for Advanced Medical Research and Biotechnology (CAMRAB), has recently furnished their new facilities with equipment and consumables provided by inqaba biotecTM West Africa. The laboratory’s focus on molecular diagnostics and research is located on the campus of Babcock University. Babcock University is a private co-educational Christian university run by the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, which is in IIishan-Remo, between Ibadan and Lagos.

Hazeez Durosomo, the area sales manager from inqaba biotecTM West Africa, was provided the opportunity to advise and consult on the   laboratory setup at CAMRAB. Furthermore, Hazeez provided onsite training to the laboratory personnel, to ensure optimal handling of all equipment and flexible use of the laboratory work space. Optimising a laboratories work space for improved productivity and efficiency requires an in-depth understanding of the equipment and working environment. Furthermore, it is essential that a molecular laboratory adhere to good laboratory practice, quality control standards and guidelines. This ensures that all experiments are performed as accurately and efficiently as possible, limiting exposure to hazardous chemicals and minimising contamination.
