Welcome to Southern Community Laboratories

Southern Community Laboratories began as small private pathology service in the South Island city of Dunedin in the 1960s. Since then our operations have progressively expanded to become New Zealand’s largest network of diagnostic laboratories, providing medical services all over New Zealand.

Our laboratories offer a wide range of diagnostic tests in biochemistry, haematology, microbiology, immunology, molecular pathology, histology and cytology. They are equipped with the newest analysers and state-of-the-art computer systems. Most of our routine patient test results are reported back to the requesting doctors within 24 hours of specimen collection.

Emphasis at Southern Community Laboratories is always placed on provision of top quality laboratory services for  Health Professionals and their Patients. We are proud to have branches in smaller provincial towns as well as larger cities.

We are IANZ accredited and our team is committed to ensuring diagnostic excellence. We aim to build relationships for life with our community and healthcare professionals, and work in close relationship with the other Healthscope laboratories in New Zealand.
