Where are you? (OFM location survey)

Hi all. Great to see such a massive community around the project, but we’re curious just how far we reach. To the best of my knowledge, this is a list of all the countries where an OpenFlexure Microscope has been built or used.

Please let us know if there’s anywhere you can add to the list (before I just start shipping OFMs to the largest countries still in grey). I’m going to update this map with all the posts as we go, so it should stay up to date.

This is for interest and outreach use only - we won’t use this information to try and identify anyone. If you’d rather not share this information, no problem

I’ve been talking to a colleague in South Africa who’s built one (and motorised it with ridiculously fast motors, I hope he uploads the video)!

I think Ghana’s still missing - I’m sure Kumasi Hive have built at least one?
