Since 1995, Synlab Ghana, formerly Medlab has been delivering quality laboratory services to the Ghanaian doctor and patient, embassies, visa programs, and corporate clients. As the first medical laboratory in West Africa to achieve accreditation under ISO 15189 in 2008, we set the pace for excellence in medical diagnostics. Our international accreditation recognises our commitment to quality, competency, and reliable results.

The accuracy of our test results is independently confirmed by an accredited Proficiency Testing provider who regularly send us unknown samples. Based on our results when processing these samples, they rank us amongst the best in the world. Not all, we have also been audited by DAkkS, a German Accreditation Body to maintain our accreditation in 2016 for the next cycle.

Synlab Ghana, formerly Medlab uses automated analysers, which are supplied by international companies and regularly maintained. We employ highly qualified staff who benefit from continued professional training. This assures our patients of the highest standard of quality the first time, each time, every time. SYNLAB performs these services in Ghana, with the exception of a few tests which are sent to our sister internationally recognised referral labs in Europe, South Africa and the USA.

Synlab Ghana, formerly Medlab operates a central laboratory in Accra, two regional laboratories in Kumasi and Takoradi, and a dedicated in-house lab on the premises of a major clinical organisation. We operate a network of branches to provide courteous, comfortable, patient care at convenient collection points. We are committed to educating and informing our patients regarding their tests.
