The laboratory Labomedic Group is the result of the merge of 2 historical labs that worked apart.
One in the region of Thuin ( GM labs) the other one in Namur ( Labomedic)
Labomedic started its activity in 1982, cardinal mercier av in Namur, in 1987 the lab was taken over by M. Durieux who was the director until 2014.
In 1994 the lab moved in Belgrade in a new building adapted to the technical evolution of clinical Biology.
IN 2006, Labomedic incorporates « laboratoires des Français » in Ans and begins the Liege story.
In Thuin Doctor Georges Marchal, is one ot the pioneers of medical biology in Belgium starting a laboratory activity in 1965. Since 1972, the growth is such positive that he creates “laboratoire de pathologie et microscopie électronique” established on the slope of the Sambre facing the ramparts. At this time the lab performs, add the clinical biology services, anatomical pathology, analyzes. Already in 1976, the lab step into the computer world and the same year, Dr Philippe de Nayer creates the department of nuclear medicine, the technical progress continues with the acquisition of 2 electron microscopes, one for transmission ( 1977) and the other one for scanning in 1979, the boom of the lab culminates in 1979 with the opening of a franch branch in Paris in collaboration with Hotel Dieu. Unfortunately, Doctor Marchal got severe health troubles and causes a quick cessation of activities in France. In 2003, the lab was taken over by a group of biologists and became “GM laboratoire d’analyses médicales” under the direction of Jean-Jacques Mollet. 10 years later, all the technical installation move to Namur ( Belgrade).
The 2 laboratories have then joined their power with the fusion on January 1, 2014, becoming an entity of optimal size to cope the challenges related to the evolution of health care in Belgium.
Since there Emmanuel Dubois ensure the direction of the Lab. Still 100% of Belgian biologists at the lead, which is outstanding in our country. Our laboratory is close to the population and handle the specificities and the habits of each region.
This proximity is particularly evident by offering collection services to a dozen sites in Wallonia and Brussels.
