6 November 2017 (Monday) - Developing Countries

Here’s a thought-provoking article from the nice people at Lablogatory.
When I first started in lab work all those years ago the chief BMS was involved in organising help to set up a path lab in Ruanda. We all got involved, and the expert opinion sorted out all sorts of stuff that would be useful in a lab in a developing country.
When they got to the place where the lab was there was a shock. No one told them the place had no electricity…
I expect things are different now. But different how.

I would be interested to see how labs progress in developing countries. Will they follow the UK route where the actual result produced is often secondary to the paperwork? Or will they make their own way?
Time will tell…
