Lancet again enjoys NOSHCON success
The Lancet Laboratories stand, manned by marketing officers Jacqueline Timothy and Ansie Erasmus, was visited by more than 200 delegates.
It gave Lancet an opportunity to network with existing and potential clients, and increase the company brand awareness in the industry. “Positive feedback was received regarding the quality of our information brochures presented at the stand,” says Erasmus.
As one of the leading pathology laboratories operating throughout Africa, Lancet Laboratories provides vital diagnostic and monitoring pathology services in South Africa, Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Swaziland, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Tanzania. Since its modest beginnings in the 1940s, the company has grown exponentially in capacity and, in 2010, conducted 1,8 million blood tests each month across the African continent.
Lancet is owned as a traditional medical partnership, where its pathologists are also shareholders. About 80 pathologists, each with their area of expertise, lead the service to ensure the quality and validity of investigations. They also provide a consultation service for physicians, managed health care institutions, the occupational health environment, and the insurance and industry sectors. Lancet operates in the private healthcare environment and provides specialist pathology services for the corporate, insurance and industrial sectors. The company offers an extensive range of pathology services, from sophisticated molecular and cytogenetic investigations to advanced chemical analyses.
Three reference laboratories are based in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Durban. The main laboratory is situated in Richmond, Johannesburg. This laboratory processes both routine and specialised pathology investigations, and also acts as a reference laboratory to many smaller laboratories throughout South Africa and the rest of Africa.
