The Center for Microbiology research has key installations in different locations including the Kenyatta National Hospitals, the KEMRI headquarters at Mbagathi, Kwale and Kisumu sites. Some labs belonging to CMR have specialized equipments that enable researchers carry our sophisticated experiments and this has contributed significantly to the high turn over of scientific proposals and research publications from this center. Below, we highlight some of these facilities
The Enteric Pathogens Research Laboratory.
The following equipment are also available in the Kisumu lab
The Nagasaki University Institute of Tropical Medicine (NUITM) lab
Currently, the NUITM group is rehabilitating four CMR labs and upgrading them to international standards. This upgrade includes fitting the labs with Level 3 safety cabinets capable of handling viral work and other pathogens that are considered risky to work with in standard labs. The labs will also have modern PCR machines and other equipments for Molecular Biology
