We take practical steps to improve quality expertise, processes and supervision in clinical analysis laboratories so that they can deliver reliable diagnostic results.

Adopting a standardized approach to ensure quality in every aspect of running a laboratory helps improve overall organization, technical capacities and lab efficiency.
