Lab Diagnostics Services

Molecular Diagnostics

Liselo labs has a team of molecular biologists who have established research and diagnostics facilities in South Africa and Lesotho.

Liselo has industry customers for its molecular biology based diagnostics and research in plant virology, animal pathology and human diagnostics.  In alignment with our One Health strategy, our ability to validate RDT based tests is a key requirement, and this is achieved with a PCR based molecular laboratory, linked to our Mipha App.


Liselo Labs in 2020 established a COVID-19 testing center in Maseru in partnership with the Department of Health and the Department of Agriculture.  The capacity for COVID-19 PCR tests is 10 000 per day, at full implementation.  This capacity is to assist with the screening and diagnosis requirements of Lesotho, and the broader SADC region.

Liselo staff test for COVID-19 via RT-PCR in a new laboratory setup in Lesotho.
