The Diagnostix Group
We are the market leader in providing Quality, Ethical, Professional, Internationally recognized laboratory services to the medical professions and the general community.
It all started way back in 1985 when Dr. Keeng Wai CHAN1 left his post as Head of the Pathology Department at Princess Margaret Hospital. Dr. Chan started a private practice under the name of Diagnostix Pathology Laboratories with Dr. Shiu Hon CHUI2 assisting in looking after the quality control program. In 1987, the first medical laboratory was established and in 1991, Dr. K. W. Chan and Dr. S. H. Chui set up Diagnostix Medical Centre Limited (DMC) in Central. This has become the head office of the Group’s medical laboratories.
