Health and
Life Sciences

From the supply of medical equipment, consumables or pharmaceuticals to consultancy services, we have kept assisting hospitals, medical laboratories and farms in meeting their respective medical, diagnostic and veterinary requirements.

The Health and Life Sciences Cluster is organised into 6 legal entities and 6 specialised departments spread over 4 countries (Mauritius, Madagascar, Rwanda and Comoros) with a total workforce of 115 employees.

By pooling expertise and experience, we aim to support health projects all over Africa. Our consultancy services cover every aspect of these projects, from conception all the way through to the opening of the facility and beyond. We provide support both in terms of building the project and planning, buying, installing and testing of the equipment to be used at the facility. We offer consultancy services in several fields such as medical, diagnostic, laboratory or research equipment. Our department of health standards provides assistance regarding the establishment of a quality assurance system, customer care services and applications required to acquire international accreditation. In our never-ending commitment to excellence and innovation, we are also currently introducing both patient and environmentally-friendly hospital systems as part of our "small hospital, big idea" program.

 

We have distinguished ourselves in the Diagnostics market by supplying products to the fields of microbiology, haematology, immunology, serology, veterinary and general laboratory practice.

The Laboratory Science division is dedicated towards providing its expertise and products to private pathology laboratories, blood transfusion services, Universities and Medical School research laboratories, veterinary laboratories, pharmacies and industrial and food laboratories.

From representing a few international laboratories, we have succeeded in building ourselves into a strong organisation.

We cover the needs of the medical and pharmaceutical customer base by providing total healthcare solutions and by linking these with efficient logistics, so as to deliver the adequate service with promptness and accuracy.

Our pharmaceutical products range from vitamins, antibiotics, nutrients, analgesic, antiviral and ophthalmic to cardiovascular supplies as per different formulations (powder, syrup, injections or tablets).

The Medical Equipment division can equip nearly all departments of a hospital from the operating theatre to the sterilisation unit, imaging centre, maternity, emergency unit, cardiac unit, mortuary unit and incinerator. During the past years, we have been involved in many projects in the medical field, namely regarding the installation of equipment in public hospitals and private clinics locally. We have hence installed more than 70% of the medical equipment requirements at Apollo Bramwell Hospital in Mauritius.
