about us

In Kenya, we are well-known for providing a wide range of specialized laboratory pathology services, including anatomic pathology (histopathology, cytopathology and immunohistochemistry), PCR and genetic tests for oncology and infectious diseases, tuberculosis testing, microbiology, endocrinology, clinical chemistry, coagulation assays, haematology, toxicology, and occupational health tests.

Cerba Lancet Kenya is a traditional medical partnership in which our pathologists are in charge of the ongoing stipulations of professional diagnostic pathology. The pathologist's role is to ensure not only the quality and validity of investigations but also to manage a consultative service for doctors, healthcare managers, and administrators in the insurance and industrial sectors.

Doctors and clients can choose between hard copy and automatic emails, as well as the innovative Mobile App and Path portal, which are electronic formats that provide very rapid delivery of a result to a Smartphone and computer.

In complementing government efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19 pandemic and in line with our theme this year, giving back to the community, we have joined other business leaders in supporting workers and communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This practice is in line with our vision as a member of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) Kenya Chapter since 2012 which has identified environment, human rights, anti-corruption and Sustainable labor practice as focus areas together with commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
