Quest Laboratories was formed in December 1998 with the merger of Quest
Laboratory, Heal Laboratory and The Medical Laboratory. It was a subsidiary of
the British Union Provident Association (BUPA) Health Care Asia until May
2005 when ‘The Gribbles Group’ under Healthscope Limited acquired Quest
Laboratories from BUPA.
In Nov 2005, Gribbles Singapore merged with Quest Laboratories into one
operation. Following a year later in Dec 2006, Quest Laboratories acquired
DoctorsLab Diagnostics. With the merger of Quest Laboratories and DoctorsLab in June 2007, the new Quest Laboratories Pte Ltd is now the largest independent

sister network of laboratories in Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia.
