Welcome to

Davies Diagnostics (Pty) Ltd

EXTRAordinary service... It's That Little "EXTRA" that makes us the BEST


avies Diagnostics (Pty) Ltd was founded in 1983 primarily to distribute the range of products manufactured by Mast Laboratories, United Kingdom. Between 1983 -1988 we firmly established ourselves in the microbiology area.

Since 1988 we have expanded by introducing new products and technology into the microbiology, haematology, immunology, serology, veterinary and general laboratory markets. The Company employs eighteen people, including four Technical Sales Consultants, visiting laboratories throughout the country on a daily basis. The Technical Sales Consultants as well as the Operations Manager, Customer support, Sales Manager and the General Manager are qualified in medical microbiology and have sales /marketing experience and qualifications. From South Africa we also deal directly with neighbouring states such as Swaziland, Lesotho. We also export to other Southern African countries such as Zimbabwe, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Botswana and Zambia

As a Company, Davies Diagnostics (Pty) Ltd has regular contact with all "opinion leaders" in the pathology field, advertise in all relevant journals and exhibit at all applicable meetings. To support this and our sales team, we also send out regular mailings, both technical and commercial in nature. This has helped us gain the reputation of being a professional Company that supplies quality products, supported by excellent customer landingproductice. When looking for new products we will only take on products that we are confident will match our commitment to these factors. We then support these with our full marketing and sales efforts.

We have a team of very enthusiastic people who are working hard to grow the Company. In testimony to this enthusiastic spirit, we proudly achieved ISO 9001 certification in July, 2001. Davies Diagnostics (Pty)Ltd was the first independent diagnostics distributor to achieve such status in South Africa! We are ISO 13485 Certified.
