Liselo labs have a team of molecular biologists who have established research and diagnostics facilities in South Africa, Lesotho, and Namibia.
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 utilizing our PCR-based molecular laboratories, linked to our Mipha App.
Between May 2020 and June 2021 Liselo Labs established two COVID-19 PCR laboratories in Lesotho, and two in Namibia. These are the first private molecular diagnostics laboratories in both of these countries. This capacity was deployed to assist with the screening and diagnosis requirements of Lesotho and Namibia, and the broader SADC region.
