Responsibility to support a healthier Africa

As a member of a leading group in local Clinical Pathology and medical diagnosis in Africa, we recognise our important role and responsibility in providing specialist Pathology services and infrastructure to support the fight against HIV, tuberculosis and other key health issues affecting our continent.

  • Comprehensive analysis of potable water.
  • Effluent monitoring.
  • Environmental assessment of separator pits in oil tank farms.
  • Analysis of metallic and non-metallic elements in different samples.
Analytical Methods and Instruments

We make use of analytical instruments with modern technology that gives high precision and accuracy and at the same time giving a faster turnaround time (TAT). Selected laboratories are equipped with a range of analytical services to facilitate integration and overlapping of various study components.

Titration: a method of quantitative chemical analysis to determine the concentration of an identified analyte (a substance to be analysed). Titration tests the following parameters:

  • Acidity
  • Alkalinity
  • Chlorides
  • Hardness

Spectroscopy studies the absorption and emission of light and other radiation by matter, as related to the dependence of these processes on the wavelength of the radiation.

  • Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrometer: This is a very common technique to analyse heavy metal elements.
  • Spectrophotometer: This is a very common technique to analyse metallic and non-metallic elements.

Chromatography
Gas chromatography is used to separate mixtures of volatile organic compounds from food contaminants and environmental pollutants.

Bacteriology
Basic microbial procedures are carried out for the analysis of water and wastewater. Multiple tube method for the detection of coliforms is employed.

Biological Monitoring (Occupational Health). We offer biological monitoring of exposure to solvents and pollutants, analyse for 20 of the most common metals as well as offer drugs of abuse testing.

Preventive Medicine (Executive Wellness Screening). Wellness screening is the first phase to a healthy lifestyle through full-body examination. Early detection of diseases through regular screening can make a major impact on the effectiveness and cost of treatment.
