Our long-standing history started almost 40 years ago as Clina labs which in 2008 merged with Immunoassay Laboratories to meet the increasing demand for a wider range of diagnostic tests and quality. The further need for an even broader range of test and service quality saw the evolution into Clina-Lancet which is able to offer you the widest range of investigations available in Nigeria today.
