Corporate Services

 Together, the employer and employee must work as a team to make the workplace a healthy and safe environment.

We recognise the need for  an Employee Wellbeing Programme. Our Corporate Wellness services can support companies to address a range of employee health issues. 

Drugs of abuse testing

For accurate quantitative analysis, drugs of abuse testing can be done using a rapid system (qualitative) or Tandem Mass Spectrometry. The turnaround time will be determined by the method utilized and will range from one hour to seven days.

Alcohol abuse testing

Alcohol levels as well as the CDT (carbohydrate deficient transferrin) and gamma GT tests offered by Pathologists Lancet Kenya assists with the diagnosis of chronic alcohol use and alcoholism.

HIV testing and counselling

Pathologists Lancet Kenya provides a comprehensive HIV testing programme including monitoring of HIV treatment, therapeutic drug monitoring and genotyping (resistance testing). Along with testing, we also offer pre and post-test counselling for:

  • Self-referral patients
  • Those who have tested HIV positive without receiving counselling
  • Adherence to treatment

TB testing

Lancet Laboratories (SA) GeneXpert (Cepheid®, Xpert®MTB/RIF) rapid test, recently endorsed by the World Health Organisation (WHO), provides patients throughout South Africa and Africa with an accurate and early diagnosis of TB within twenty four hours, compared to other testing methods that can take up to three months. A TB questionnaire is available on request for establishing the need for testing.

Corporate wellness days

Employee wellness management is one of the four pillars of workplace strength, and it is integrated with HIV and TB monitoring, biological monitoring, and a comprehensive Health and Safety program. Employee wellness activities, such as corporate wellness days, can increase workplace morale and performance while also lowering absenteeism.

Getting to the heart of the matter – Cardiovascular Disease

Essentially, one must consider all risk factors for cardiovascular disease when evaluating an individual`s cholesterol status. The more risk factors a person has, in combination with undesirable lipid levels, the greater the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

Pathology tests and wellness services  assess these risk factors: high blood pressure, increased Body Mass Index (BMI), Diabetes and high Total Cholesterol. If an employee’s Total Cholesterol is high, we will recommend an additional Lipid testing to assess for high LDL Cholesterol and low HDL Cholesterol (Lipogram).

We also offer a healthy eating plan to help employees reduce Cholesterol and manage your condition to Diabetes.
