at Zemero Heath Center
North Shoa Zone
On 24 May 2011, installation of new laboratory equipment was completed at the Zemero Health Center, North Shoa Zone, Ethiopia. Two laboratory technicians were trained by a representative of the Afro-German Company in Addis Ababa, a PLC that imports laboratory and quality control equipment and supplies to Ethiopia. Prior to this, the clinic lacked virtually any modern lab equipment. The new equipment consisted of a fully automated chemistry machine with a capacity of 200 tests per hour, a hematology machine, a three-part differential urine analyzer, a water bath for serology testing, a laboratory incubator, water purifier, shaker and a compound microscope. IFA would like to acknowledge their generous donors and in particular Drew Kahn, former CEO of Houston North West Medical Center, Texas,and Jason Baker, CEO of Saint Mary’s Medical Center in Apple Valley, California, for their large donation of Laboratory Equipment and other critical medical supplies.
