Equipment distribution programs
Program for Equipment Exchange & Reutilization (PEER)
With support from commercial partners, the novel Program for Equipment Exchange & Reutilization (PEER) aims to redistribute the enormous cadre of pre-owned, high quality microscopes in the warehouses of many imaging instrument manufacturers. Allocation of instruments will be based on a peer-reviewed application process and will be awarded to African institutions with a commitment to supporting local microscopy resources. Staff or researchers from the institute will also receive advanced training for the instrument as well as have the opportunity to partake in a job-shadowing program offered by Global BioImaging.
