Service Quality

Quality of Our Services

The scope of our services includes specimen handling, sample processing and analysis, reporting of test results, handling and delivery of supplies and test reports/information to our clients. Our internal quality audits, quality assurance and quality control programmes ensure the achievement of our service quality mission.

Quality of Our Analytical Results

The integrity and reliability of the testing process have direct implication on the quality of analytical results produced. Besides the usual regular preventive and service maintenance on instruments and compliance to instrument calibration protocols, our laboratories also participate in many internal and external quality control programmes to monitor the testing processes.
