BGiLAB is split into two arms: Clinical Diagnostics and Biotechnology Divisions.
The Clinical Laboratory arm is focused on the next generation diagnostics for disease stratification and therapy selection. Our goal is to bring advanced testing techniques and expertise to communities in Sub-Saharan Africa. We aim to become the point of call for fast, affordable and reliable clinical laboratory results.
The Biotechnology arm is a leading supplier of bio-medical research lab equipment and reagents to countries in Central and West-Central Africa. BGiLAB is a major supplier of Bio-Safety cabinets, Rapid test kits for blood borne infections, clinical chemistry diagnostic equipment solutions and also fills orders for diverse hard to find lab equipment in several African countries.
To be the premier provider of medical laboratory services in the communities we serve. To contribute to excellent patient care by providing comprehensive, high quality laboratory testing.
There is a huge need to improve medical laboratory services in Africa to avoid compromising patient care. Very often medical personnel are compelled to make clinical decisions on the basis of a very limited number of diagnostic tests. Rapid and accurate diagnostic testing should be available at the first consultation to enable clinicians to accurately diagnose and to avoid wasting limited resources and increasing ill health associated with initial misdiagnosis. As treatment costs for common disease conditions increase in Sub-Saharan Africa, the need to shift from presumptive and empirical management towards achievement of specific diagnosis can hardly be overemphasized.
Good health is wealth. Besides the fact that there's an intrinsic value of health that is a human right, the economic case for investing in healthcare is robust. Experts agree that improved healthcare in Africa is essential for sustainable development. Healthier citizens are more productive, earn more, consume more, work longer, all of which have a positive impact on the Gross Domestic Product of a country. Better health also reduces the financial cost of healthcare for the family, the community, the private sector and the government.BGiL Klinika
According to consultancy firm – McKinsey, by 2016 the market for health care in Sub-Saharan Africa will be worth $35 billion, however a skills shortage is constraining it since the continent is reckoned to host a quarter of the world's disease burden but only has 3% of its medical workforce. The World Bank reckons an additional 90,000 doctors and 500,000 nurses will be needed in the next few years. The private sector has a positive role to play within the broader context of Sub-Saharan African countries health care systems by expanding access and improving quality and efficiency.BGiL Klinika
