Information Exchange

The functions of this Unit would relate to (1) Exchange of materials between the Center and other organizations or (2) Direct supply to another Center or organization.


The Center can exchange resource materials such as positive fecal specimens, photomicrographs, or other materials with institutions or organizations for some materials needed by the Center. For example, a pathologist supplies tissue slides from a parasitic infection and the Center makes photomicrographs of the specimens or photomicrographs of pathology of other parasitic infections and sends these to the pathologist in exchange.

Direct Supply

The Center responds to requests from schools or organizations needing materials for training in-house such as positive fecal specimens, photomicrographs, or educational materials. In such cases, a charge usually would be required for materials supplied.
