See You at MedLab Africa 2022!

MedLab Africa 2022

After a two-year hiatus, Medlab Africa will be returning to a fully live in-person format this year—and Priorclave will be there!

Launched in 2019 to create a platform for discussions around Afrocentric laboratory issues, MedLab Africa is an ideal environment for medical and research equipment and device professionals to connect and engage. 

As Ryan Sanderson, Africa Health and Medlab Africa’s Exhibition Director, explained back in 2019: “The power of an event like [this] is that it brings the entire healthcare ecosystem together. Launching Medlab Africa alongside Africa Health is a very welcomed step to bringing healthcare and diagnostic professionals closer together in an environment that can only improve patient outcomes across Sub-Saharan Africa.”

Priorclave Limited is extremely excited to once again be attending such events in person. “We haven’t done this in so long,” notes Priorclave’s Export Manager, Josh Walker, “we really don’t know what to expect. But we’re pretty optimistic. As we communicate with our existing Africa dealers, we’re seeing so many opportunities to support medical and research professionals throughout this region. We’re really interested in investing into Africa with training, technical support, and expertise.”

Providing the Right Autoclave for Africa 

Over the last several years, Priorclave has noted a distressing trend. Equipment manufacturers seem to be dumping low-cost/low-quality sterilizers into the African market and offering little ongoing technical support.

Priorclave’s approach is different. As a customer-focused company, Priorclave partners with local dealers—like Basan—to offer a “hybrid support” model for their customers. 

Josh Walker explains, “Our Priorclave-trained Africa dealers play a hugely important role, supporting customers in the region so they can keep up their important work. We really look forward to meeting new dealers in Africa in October, in addition to talking to end users about the most affordable and robust sterilization options for their labs and clinics.”

Priorclave’s service manager will be with them at Medlab Africa, offering training for new distributors and discussing the challenges and approaches to autoclave use and maintenance throughout the continent.

Medlab Africa 2022 will be at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa, this October 26 through 28. We look forward to seeing you there, but if you can’t make it, don’t hesitate to contact us whenever you’re ready.
