Ms Lydia Twala
|Senior Laboratory Technician|
I am part of the Culture collection team in FABI.
My duties include general Lab work, i.e. weekly preparation of media, preparing cultures for freeze drying, transferring fungal cultures to the plates and finally to bottles for preservation. Furthermore, I help with withdrawal of cultures for students for their projects. My administration duties include giving students information on the different cultures from our files and also recording how cultures with problems should be taken care of.
