We are excited to announce that the confocal microscope we shipped to icipe, Nairobi is now fully set-up and operational. The microscope, a Leica SP5, was kindly donated by the Cellular Imaging Facility (CIF) at CHUV / University of Lausanne, Switzerland. Special thanks to Marie and Jeremy for coordinating the Swiss and Kenyan side of the operation, respectively! See below for some pictures. More footage can be found on icipe’s Flickr stream here.
