AfriTox ONLINE allows one user to access AfriTox at any time.

If you want to use AfriTox on multiple devices or computers within one practice you will need multiple user accounts and the downloadable OFFLINE version may be more suited to your requirements.

The cost of subscribing to AfriTox ONLINE is R950.00 per annum.


Downloads all the information in AfriTox onto a desktop or laptop computer. It does not require continuous internet access. It can be used at any time, and lets everyone who works in a clinical unit have access to AfriTox. Whenever AfriTox OFFLINE is in use, it searches for an active internet connection and updates itself automatically. It must be connected to the internet at least once a month.

Each clinical unit or hospital pays an annual fee for a site licence for AfriTox OFFLINE.

This site licence allows for multiple installations of AfriTox within the clinical unit or hospital. An Emergency Unit can therefore buy one licence and use AfriTox OFFLINE on several devices within the unit simultaneously.

AfriTox OFFLINE is available to South African state hospitals for no charge. State hospitals in neighbouring countries may be eligible for a reduced subscription rate. Contact Us to find out about this.

The cost of a single site licence to AfriTox OFFLINE is R14,259.00, with a sliding scale fee reduction per additional site.
