    Hello, my name is Ronald Munjoma, based in Harare, Zimmbabwe.

    I am new to the laboratory industry with a strong interest in LIMS (having an IT background). I am currently contributing to the Open Source LIMS project called BIKA Labs -

    I am more inclined to BIKA Helth - and I am exploring ways of assisting with Health streghthening in Zimbabwe and Africa as whole. Most Zimbabwean and African labs are still using pen and paer to manage their results and we would like to help them automate the process using a low cost and affordable solution.

    As part of efforts to help labs function efficiently I am currently seeking sponsorship to develop as Open Source Instrument Server to help labs with costly instrument interfacing.

    I am looking forward to learning a lot from the community and give back the little I know for now.

    Best and Regards
    Ronald Munjoma
