LabSPACE Africa is an unincorporated company that provides facilities for international and local researchers in South Africa. Our research space and archive space to preserve long-term samples, and also the climate units for stability assessments. Our aim is to cut down on laboratory overheads, equipment costs and operating costs so that research can be conducted more efficiently and more cost-effectively.

LabSPACE offers Chemistry services. It provides lab space spaces, offices and access to all the analytical and general equipment for sample generation and reports.

We aim to create LabSPACE Africa facilities across South Africa, giving our clients and us a significant advantage in a variety of research areas.

LabSPACE is available to clients who want to partner or rent space in a laboratory. It offers competitive pricing that allows them to run their own facilities for a fraction of expense of traditional laboratories.

Compliant services are those that include the use of lab space in the processes that deal with safety in compliance with local regulations, and the management of biological or chemical waste.

We can help you set up your facility or provide space in our facilities.


Private sector labs have to deal with significant risk and high cost equipment acquisitions. LabSPACE Africa has formed a partnership with leading companies for analytical equipment. Equipment is available along with the required support for analytical analysis at our Midrand facilities, but equipment can also be put on lease at our client's facilities to complete a particular project, ensuring that the budget of our partners do not be squandered on equipment that are not used regularly or for a single time. Once a project has been completed the equipment will be maintained and maintained by trained personnel. Maintenance reports and other paperwork will be made available.

At present, universities acquire expensive equipment via grant applications, which hinders their project. LabSPACE Africa could speed up this process and enable researchers to assess the best solution for their needs prior to making a decision, or simply leasing the equipment or in our facilities.

LabSPACE Africa is proud to provide a unique mix of regulatory compliance and science knowledge. This together with our wide network of advisory Scientists as well as suppliers lets LabSPACE Africa to provide consultation on demand.

The following areas are covered:

  • Discussing , advising and customising techniques to meet the needs of the client
  • Input in regulation and accreditation.
  • Assistance in the form of registration, permits or accreditation

LabSPACE Africa offers assistance and direction with respect to different regulatory guidelines. Assistance in Quality Management Systems (ISO /IEC ISO 13485/IEC 15189/ISO/IEC 17025 & GCL).

ISO/IEC 17025


LabSPACE Africa is an all-inclusive lab that can prepare samples, which include SPE stations and ultrasonic baths, as well as drying and dissolution apparatus for samples. We provide comprehensive testing for pharmaceuticals by using the following technology:

  • HPLC
  • UPLC with two MS and PDA
  • ICP-MS
  • FTIR Thermometer

Alongside the analytical apparatus, LabSPACE Africa also provides stability tests, moisture analysis and assessment of physical properties, such as thickness and hardness of the compounds.

ISO/IEC 17025


Regular training sessions will be offered to clients who have registered with us on specific technologies within our units and regulatory guidelines like GCP, GLP ISO15189, ISO17025, ISO13485. Training will be given by experts from the industry and by individuals that are registered with regulatory agencies.

consumable storage facilities


Research projects and clinical trials rely on biological samples as the backbone. Samples from backup trials or research samples are usually stored to allow future analysis, and conserving these samples is essential for further study or Reanalysis. LabSPACE Africa has long-term storage units available at various temperatures (5degC and -20degC.; -80degC and -160degC). Once received at our lab, samples are marked with cryo labels to be stored in regular (2ml) cryo boxes and then entered into our cloud-based LIMS. The units are monitored continuously by the Beyond Wireless remote temperature monitoring system and backup power as well as contingency planning is in place.

Frequently Asked Questions

Mycotoxins, which are toxic substances made by mold or fungi, can be poisonous. They can be harmful to humans if they are consumed, absorbed into skin, or inhaled. Even a small amount of mycotoxin could cause serious health problems for animals or humans, and even death. Mycotoxicosis is the result of mycotoxins poisoning. This condition is likely familiar to you if your coffee contains moldy coffee.

Intoxication can result from mycotoxin contamination in cereals and other feed products, particularly in farm animals. Effective analytical tools are needed to analyze the feed for toxic fungal metabolites. The current methods include an extraction step, a clean up step to remove unwanted co-extracted matrix elements and a separation step that allows for precise detection. For most mycotoxins, quantitative methods of analysis use immunoaffinity clean up with high-performance liquidchromatography (HPLC), separation in combination with ultraviolet and/or fluorescence detection.

Food, animal feed and food additives ingredients can be tested for melamine.

Melamine screening, analysis and evaluation of food-related products:
For food, agricultural products, raw materials, and ingredients, melamine testing can be done. Intertek laboratories offer cost-effective and quick testing. The melamine testing labs can quickly receive samples.

Intertek offers melamine analysis and detection services to food and agricultural companies, retailers, importers, food manufacturers, and food processors. Laboratory analysis of processed foods, animal food, wheat gluten, rice protein concentrate, and corn gluten is what melamine testing entails. The Intertek laboratories offer the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), recommended analytical methods for melamine screening, testing and quantitative analysis using Liquid Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry(GC-MS).

Melamine analysis, detection capabilities:

  • Checking food ingredients for melamine
  • Quantifications of the levels of melamine in tainted foodstuffs and ingredients
