Nyumbani operates a state-of-the-art laboratory.
Through generous support from donors around the world, we opened our world-class Nyumbani Diagnostic Laboratory in 2011. A modern, internationally accredited laboratory gives Nyumbani scientists and medical staff high-tech tools to better diagnose and treat Kenya’s HIV/AIDS patients. The on-site laboratory allows more accurate and faster HIV/AIDS diagnosis and testing.
Diagnostic capabilities now include:
- HIV counseling and testing
- HIV drug resistance (genetic analyzer)
- HIV viral load
- Immunology testing
- Microbiology and parasitology
- Clinical chemistry
- Molecular biology
The Nyumbani Diagnostic Laboratory is open six days a week, with services through the main laboratory and an adjunct collection center, as well as an on-call medical sample courier service. Clients range from private hospital laboratories, to international NGOs and research institutions, to community-based health care programs in Kenya. We also serve walk-in clients.
Highest quality control
Our quality management system ensures we continue our top health, safety and environmental record, and professional services.
We are grateful to our many donors from Nyumbani USA, Nyumbani Ireland, the Irish government, Nyumbani UK, and many supporters from Japan, Australia and Ireland who helped bring this life-saving laboratory to Nyumbani.
