Lancet In Africa


Present in South Africa for more than 60 years, Lancet Laboratories is one of South Africa’s original private pathology laboratories and has a special focus on marrying high quality cutting edge pathology services and efficient turn-around times to meet the needs of its clients. Its main offices and laboratories are based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Lancet Laboratories operates in the private healthcare environment and, in addition, offers specialist pathology services for the corporate, insurance and mining sectors. It processes more than 1.8 million tests per month and offers an extensive range of pathology services, from sophisticated molecular and cytogenetic investigations to advanced chemical analyses.

A key Lancet Laboratories hallmark is its continuous growth and development. More than eighty specialist pathologists, each with their own area of expertise, lead the service, not only to ensure the quality and validity of investigations, but also to offer consultative services to physicians, managed healthcare institutions, the occupational health environment and the insurance industry sectors. Geographically, this growth has taken Lancet from its strong base within South Africa to its current operations in 12 countries in Southern, East and West Africa.

Lancet Laboratories is committed to providing diagnostic excellence. This, taken together with its important role and responsibility to provide specialist pathology services and infrastructure to support the fight against the key health issues affecting our continent, makes Lancet the optimal partner for anyone seeking pathology and diagnostic services in Africa.
