Information

Even though thousands of blood, urine and hair samples are routinely examined by our employees during routine laboratory work, we attach particular importance to constant quality improvement in order to be able to meet the changing and increasing demands and requirements of our patients, consignors and customers. In addition to regular training, inter-laboratory testing, quality assurance and quality control audits and accreditation procedures, we are also involved in research projects and studies dealing with new research methods and new laboratory diagnostic parameters.
