As clinic manager Izette should be your first stop in sending samples to FABI. She will provide you with a reference number for your sample and keep you updated with progress. She will also send out a letter with the results of the analyses.
Prof. Jolanda Roux

Guides Izette in the clinic and manages field extension for the TPCP. If Izette is thus not available, you can talk to Jolanda. Jolanda will also most likely be the one to do field visits in cases where it is not possible to send samples.

Entomological samples are logged by Izette who then liaises with Brett Hurley and Bernard Slippers
for identification and report writing.
We will respond to the receipt of samples (preferably by e-mail), but please always check that samples have been received. These are sometimes lost during dispatch.
When submitting samples, please include your contact information and as much detail as possible about the problem you are encountering (see information brochure).If you are unsure of the problem being encountered or need advice on collection of samples, please phone Izette, Jolanda or Brett and discuss the problem before collecting and sending the samples.
