The smooth running of the machine can be traced to both James Endersby for rapidly installing effective air conditioning and relevant electrical modification and Sheena Wakefield for managerial oversight and housing.

We are extremely grateful for the technical abilities of Peter Bates and Phil Rogers (LSHTM), as well as the authors of the Bioteam iNquiry software suite, viz. Stan, Chris and Bill.
