For over 70 years Lasec® has been supplying quality, dependable solutions and services to the laboratory and scientific community.
Our 410 strong staff complement includes more than 80 scientifically trained and qualified personnel who bring years of practical laboratory, engineering and teaching experience to your aid.
One of the first laboratory product suppliers to expand beyond South Africa’s borders, we have been meeting customers’ needs throughout Africa for over 20 years.
Our extensive sourcing capabilities and strong partnerships with leading international manufacturers, coupled with our ability to provide customised solutions through our own local manufacturing facility makes Lasec® the one-stop shop to meet your requirements. Our buying power means you can get the highest quality product at the most competitive price.
With warehousing facilities in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban, we hold stock of a broad range of products, including instruments, consumables and reagents. This extensive stock-holding reduces delivery times of key products across our markets.
Supported by a state-of-the-art supply chain management system and partnering with reliable logistics service providers, we can ensure efficient in-bound and out-bound shipments across Africa.
On-site installations are accompanied by customer training on the correct use and maintenance of equipment. Our scientists keep abreast of the latest technologies and trends, allowing us to offer informative and practical training courses, many of which are CPD-accredited.
Our Lasec® quality promises are backed by international accreditation: ISO9001 for good business practice, ISO13485 for our diagnostic kit facility and ISO17025 for volume and mass metrology.
