The 17 year anniversary marks an important milestone for the
company as we look back at our humble beginnings, our growth and
accomplishments which is premised on the relationships built over the years
with clients, staff and the community in which we operate.
It is particularly at this time that we find it appropriate to thank everyone who has been involved in supporting BICS over the years. Our success has been possible because of the support from our customers who rely on our products and services and our incredible team.
A warm thank you to all our clients and partners who we share this success with and we continue to look forward to this partnerships for a foreseeable future.
The empowerment of businesswomen should not begin or end on Women’s Day. For real women empowerment to happen it requires sustainability intervention throughout the year.
Of particular importance is that women represents about 51% of the South African population and therefore represent a majority shareholder of South Africa Incorporated yet have remained mostly unrecognized in the mainstream decision making of the economy. It has, therefore, more than ever before become very important to assert ourselves and continue to play in the development of woman in South Africa.

We would like to thank all the people that visited our stand we hope we could be of analytic to you and your organisation please fill free to contact us for more info. and to all thas that could not make it to our location at the event, we hope to see you in the next event in 2021. we would also like to thank the Analytica Lab Africa for the opportunity to be a part of such a beautiful exhibition.

26 September has been declared “World Environmental Health Day” by the International Federation of Environmental Health to be celebrated each year.
‘This year’s WEHD theme of ‘Global Food Safety and Sustainability’ aims to support the provision of more safe food, to make use of precious water and nutrient resources, and for communities to increasingly value sustainable food production.’
Let us support the provision of more safe food, to make use of precious water and nutrient resources, and for communities to increasingly value sustainable food production.
Top tips for food safety
- Check ‘use by’ and ‘best before’ dates marked on package labels.
- Take chilled food straight home after purchase, if you can’t, use an insulated bag.
- Beware of poor shop hygiene, for example, overloaded chilled cabinets. The food may not be as cold as it should be.
- Avoid damaged packages.
- Aim to keep the coldest part of your fridge between 0°C and 5°C (32°F and 41°F).
- Keep a fridge thermometer in the coldest part and check the temperature regularly.
- Keep the most perishable foods, like cooked meats, in the coldest part of the fridge.
- Return perishable foods to the fridge or freezer as soon as possible after use.
- Cook food thoroughly to kill harmful bacteria.
- Don’t shorten cooking times given on package labels or in cookery books.
- Thaw frozen meat and poultry thoroughly, or it may not cook completely. It is best to defrost food in the fridge or by microwaving.
- Do not make recipes that include eggs which won’t be cooked, such as mayonnaise. Raw eggs sometimes contain food poisoning bacteria only killed by thorough cooking.
It’s exactly 15 years since Bashumi Instruments (BICS) was established as a black female owned outfit, with a dream of entering a world of business previously believed to be a predominantly white industry.
Since then we had to adapt to the constantly changing industrial dynamics of information technological advances and service orientated business. With our target market also evolving to the globalized standards of business, Bashumi Instruments had to re-invent itself to maintain and continue to provide quality and efficient services to our clients.
As we take this year to introspect on our journey from humble beginnings, we also think it’s important to commend and thank our valued clients for their immense support and loyalty over the years despite some of the service challenges that we may have come across over the years. Our proactiveness and versatility in providing excellent service including the service diversification could not have been possible without the immense and necessary demands and pressures from our clients.
We will continue to embrace our social responsibility to support youth academic excellence, women empowerment initiatives and the assimilation of young qualified black professionals into the formal industry.
This is a day that promotes the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases in the workplace.
BICS calls to all organisations to recognise this day, as we all know accidents happen and this is why we believe in taking precautionary measures keeping employees safe in the work environment.
According to a United Nations article every day, 6,300 people die as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases – more than 2.3 million deaths per year. 317 million accidents occur on the job annually; many of these resulting in extended absences from work.
As a supplier of laboratory equipment, we also supply safety and health gear for the work environment like ample other companies that supply safety gear. It is safe to say that we all can play our part in keeping safe and healthy in the workplace
