The book is addressed to two groups of people with different degrees of technical expertise and responsibilities. The first group is the laboratory staff working in developing countries. The second group is the staff involved in laboratory supplies procurement, such as hospital administrators, central stores officers and laboratory supplies procurement officers. The steps in buying equipment, procurement from suppliers, consumer problems, equipment receipt and maintenance, buying second hand laboratory equipment, minor equipment and consumables are all covered. The need for reliable laboratory power supplies, such as batteries and solar energy, is discussed comprehensively in a section covering energy requirements.
