Our dedicated laboratory professionals are there to help you with full reports on results and access to all the information you need.

Our Vision

To be the best.

Our Core Values

Excellence, Commitment, Care, and Innovation.


As part of the PathCare International Group, we are able to provide an even wider range of testing solutions and expertise.


In 2006, within 18 months of operation, PathCare Laboratories became the first internationally accredited (ISO 15189) clinical medical laboratory in the entire West Africa region and we remain the only ISO 15189 accredited laboratory in Nigeria.

ISO 15189 shows that we meet the standards and regulations of the International Standards Organisation for medical laboratories. This means that the services we offer are of the highest standards and quality. In Nigeria, where there is no formal regulation of medical laboratories, having an international accreditation is of utmost importance for your peace of mind and assurance of quality testing.

We’ve been able to retain and sustain our accreditation status after every yearly audit.
