South African Pathology Laboratories Association

Our membership consists of Laboratories of various sizes from around the country, some were founded back in 1996 to those in recent years. Those labs are founded by Pathologists, Histopathologists, Medical Technologists and Virologists, etc.

SAPLA was founded to respond to COVID-19, and address challenges faced by our members post this pandemic era, and bring effectiveness in the world of testing, reduce the backlog in the public health sector and increase the greater participation of small to medium labs in private hospitals and practices, to share opportunities widely.

Pathology is the science of the causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that deals with the laboratory examination of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.
