GreenHill Laboratories is a testing and consulting laboratory to the agricultural, veterinary and food industries. GHL accepts biological samples, food samples, commodity samples and agricultural samples for customers’ legislative, quality and health requirements.
GHL takes on a consultative approach to sample receipt and result release – please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries regarding sampling, transport conditions or anything on your test report/certificate of analysis.
GHL is also readily available for contract research, Quality Control programmes or general laboratory testing schedules. If we are unable to perform the test required, we will find a laboratory who can, on your behalf, and coordinate submission and results from that laboratory if required.

Scientists at a GreenHill Laboratories in KwaZulu-Natal believe they have made a new revelation in the war against Covid-19 – using wastewater to detect virus hotspots. While 80 wealthy individuals are petitioning for higher taxes on the rich to help pay for the billions in new government programs made necessary by the Covid-19 pandemic.
A team comprising academics from the University of the Free State (UFS) and private sector laboratory specialists can provide a virus-risk forensic service using sewage samples to monitor Covid-19 hotspots, UFS said in a July 9 statement.
GHL was honoured to be part of this team and contribute to combating the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since a South African team associated with the University of the Free State (UFS) became the first to isolate the SARS-CoV-2 virus from wastewater and developed a viable virus risk forensic service, there has been interest in this technology from a range of role players in North America, Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia, to the South African government.
