The current annex to our accreditation certificate contains the accredited parameters and can be downloaded here.

The key objectives of our quality management system include:

  • Ensuring the highest possible quality of the services we offer.
  • Objective proof of the quality and competence of the units according to international standards
  • Implementation of internal and external quality controls for quality assurance of laboratory procedures (e.g. carrying out standardised control samples and participation in proficiency-testing programs / lab comparison tests).
  • Shortest possible turnaround time for the analyses due to efficiently organized workflows.
  • All team members are highly qualified, undergo regular further training and are used to acting on their own responsibility.
