BioChek Group opens new affiliate in South Africa

Johannesburg, South Africa – We are proud to announce the official opening of our new office in South Africa today, April 1st!

With this new office in Johannesburg, we can cater to our customers and the growing markets in the entire Sub-Saharan region.

Together with our valued partners in the past, we have built a strong foothold into the African market. Starting today, we will further strengthen partnerships with our existing customer base and build on our expansion into the region through our strong and knowledgeable team on site.

We offer a total solution for the veterinary and food safety market, thanks to our close collaboration with Biotecon and Hygiena. As you know, the BioChek Group has acquired Biotecon Diagnostics in April 2020, and as of March 2021, Hygiena is the mother company of the BioChek Group. This brings a broad portfolio of ELISA tests, qPCR test, extraction kits, robotics and data analysis software under one umbrella, being a leading global player in veterinary and food safety solutions.

This combined offering also brings opportunities to expand our global reach by establishing new entities in designated areas.

Our new office in South Africa will be the first new affiliate of the BioChek Group offering this integrated range of products.

Our dedicated team will work closely with all existing as well as all potential new customers. You can contact them with all your questions or inquiries.

Please join us in welcoming our new colleagues of the South African affiliate:

  • Riaan Theron – Regional Sales Director Sub-Saharan Africa (
  • Natasha Swanepoel – Sales Manager Veterinary Sub-Saharan Africa (
  • Anné Calitz – Business Development & Office Manager (

The new affiliate team members can’t wait to continue our journey together with existing customers as well as by welcoming any new opportunities ahead and expand the business for Sub-Sahara Africa and surrounding countries.
