This insectarium supplies tsetse fly pupae or adults for research and training purposes. It also performs tsetse fly genotyping and trypanosome diagnoses.
It can assess the efficacy of chemical and biological compounds at blocking the development of trypanosomes in tsetse flies, thus preventing transmission.
