Publisher: Georgetown (Guyana): 1987Description: p. 1-2.ISSN: 0253-4746.Summary: The laboratory continues to maintain its capabilities in undertaking basic diagnostic work in support of the field activities. However, its functions have been curtailed by financial, personnel and material constraints. The laboratory is grossly understaffed in terms of both veterinary specialists and laboratory technologists. In addition, the inefficient and costly servicing of laboratory equipment has been an area of serious concern. The laboratory has been able to maintain its level of activities through a series of improvisations. During the period under review the laboratory has processed approximately 150 000 speciments. Laboratory personnel have continued to participate in various projects and surveys sponsored by international organisations such as FAD, IICA and Project Hope during the under review. There is at present a joint project with the Jamaican Bureau of Standards re the impending takeover of this particular service by the Veterinary Services. Finally, the current personnel problem could be partially resolved in the short term by the secondment of veterinary specialists through international agency supportSubject(s): LABORATORIOS | SERVICIOS VETERINARIOS | SALUD ANIMAL | JAMAICA
