Equipment Maintenance and Calibration (EMC)


The EMC programme of GHSS seeks to ensure high performance, efficiency and longevity of equipment in clinical and medical research laboratories so that the quality of results are constantly guaranteed. Over 18 biomedical engineers from 5 African countries, 45 biomedical in Cameroon have been trained on EMC. Equipment maintenance curriculum has also been developed for Technical Schools in Cameroon. We have surveyed 24 biosafety cabinets in Cameroon, and maintained / certified 18. A pipette calibration unit has equally been set up, and is calibrating all pipettes of laboratories enrolled on the SLIPTA process.
