Dear readers and contirbutors of this discussion,
I would like to ask you to limit your advice to Daniel to information related to the technical specifications and characteristics of a good bee venom collector rather than to the brand of the devise. Your valuable expert advice will allow Daniel to find the provider of a good bee venom collector by searching the internet. It is against the policy of this platform to promote commercial products or activities.
We can develop an interesting discussion around the different ways of collecting bee venom, the pros and cons of the different methods, and, like Miguel mentions below, the differences between “dried” bee venom and “live” bee venom, their use and applications, etc.
Bee venom is a powerful product, so let‘s take this opportunity to share our knowledge about bee venom also for those who are not familiar with the properties and applications of bee venom.

Miguel is handling this case the way you wanted as per your email above, am seeing appropriate way forward with the advise, just about to make the right choice.
Thank you guys, though I may have to go some miles with Miguel to final conclution of getting the right Venom collector.
Thank you guys as I wait to hear more from Miguel.

Hi Ernest Simeoni,
Have you ever made any analysis from the apitoxine that you get with that equipment?
What I learn is that you need to get the venom inside the hive and at night. The apitoxine is very unstable and loose a great part of components when ejected from the bee.
My question is because you can work the same, but at the end you get a product with less components, that will pays you worst. And even worst, we are selling a good product that can be a great product and the apiculture deserves it.

Hello my friend Daniel. Maybe you have forgotten but you already have a venom collector at your home in Nairobi ! I left it with you 4 years ago.
Perhaps I will come over and collect venom with you.
With all good wishes from the UK. John

The reason is that the accessories of that gudget is not working, and that is why am looking for a complete working set, the gudget has never worked and its there.
You know even yourself you tried to test it and battery unit was not complete therefore could not actitivate the Board.
Other wise you are welcome to work with our African bees.

Dear Daniel Padwa,
I only saw one equipment, and only have the knowledge of that equipment. But to me, it's the best way to collect the apitoxine.
The equipment is a medium honey super with the frames like your equipment.
I will tell you why this is the best way to me to collect the venom.
If you collect the venom in the bottom board you will collect plenty of other things, like pollen, and wastes that falls from the nest, or hive body.
If you collect at the honey super, you won't have this problem. You should collect the venom at night too, to grant that you have not any bees going out and inside.
This way you will get a venom with better quality.
This equipment that I speak, it was bought in one Apimondia congress and was made by a Japanese professor that study about the apitoxine.
