About Us


Everything started in 1978, when Olympia K. Pavlidou first established her Laboratories in Paphos.

Olympia, a dynamic woman, wife and mother, took her first prize in the science lesson at the age of 13. For 11 years she worked at the Royal Free Hospital, London, where she conducted research and clinical trials. When she came to Cyprus she tried to sensi­tized the world so as to understand how important blood analysis can be for prevention and health in general.

She won the first prize “Humanitarian Offer” and took the first award in the “Cypriot Business Woman of the Year for 2013” and the first prize as “Interna­tional Business Woman of the Year 2014” in Recog­nition of demonstrated qualities of entrepreneurship and outstanding community service.

Today, she is considered to be one of the best chem­ists in the whole of Cyprus. Olympia K. Pavlidou Laboratories has incorporated with her son Dr. Stephanos Pavlides in Limassol. They now cover Cyprus with a number of Laboratories and their goal and vision is to remain at the top of clinical laboratory diagnostic services with dynamic workflow, timely and continuous improvement in their services. Thousands of people have been served in their labs, providing an extensive range of high quality routine and specialized laboratory analysis.
