Established in 2014, Angsana Molecular & Diagnostics is a multinational company headquartered in Singapore, with offices in Hong Kong and Malaysia.
We specialise in developing premium genomic assays in four areas that have the largest impact on the Asian population. We not only provide clinicians with the analysis of medical conditions at a molecular level but also consultation on the diagnosis and empower them with personalised medical treatment.
With CAP (College of American Pathologists) and ISO 15189 certifications for laboratory facilities, we will ensure that we can provide you with the highest standards of quality service trusted by clinicians and patients. CAP is the world’s largest association composed exclusively of pathologists certified by the American Board of Pathology. It serves more than 17,000 physician members. CAP is internationally recognised as the ‘gold standard’ for clinical laboratories. ISO 15189 complements CAP accreditation and other quality systems by optimizing processes to improve patient care, strengthen deployment of quality standards and mitigate risks and control costs.

The colour purple represents the quality and compassion Angsana embodies.
The colour green represents the fresh insights and rejuvenation that Angsana will bring to Asia through molecular research and diagnostics.
The symbol is derived from the shape of the Angsana fruit or seed, with links to the medicinal qualities of the tree and the idea of new life. The organic form of the seed also echoes the fluid shape of a human cell under a microscope. The seed is expressed in a series of radiating contours representing the growth of Angsana as it ripples outwards across Asia, reflecting the unique ability of the Angsana to rapidly disperse its seeds.
