Raise the roof!

Raise the roof!

That’s right, we raised the roof on our new container lab in Morogoro.  Soon we’ll have a first class bio-saftey level 2 laboratory for our PREDICT project diagnostic work on wildlife virology.  So what’s left?  Well, the electrical wiring is in place, the pipes have been laid, a trench is being dug to connect the lab to the main power supply, so really it’s a matter of interior walls and flooring, windows, and doors.  Oh, and the generator slab.  Plus a custom ventilation system for our biosafety cabinet.  Then we cut the ribbon and have ourselves a party with cocktails in beakers chilled with liquid nitrogen.
