Lab Accreditation

Laboratories accredited by the South African National Accreditation System (SANAS) meet exacting standards. Each laboratory is inspected to make sure it meets those standards and that it uses appropriate quality control and quality assurance procedures to benefit the patients it serves.

The laboratory provides more diagnostic information about your health than ever before. Laboratory services drive 80% of clinical decisions from diagnosis through therapy and prognosis. The goal of the SANAS Accreditation Program is to improve the quality of clinical laboratory services and to ensure the accuracy and reliability of test results through an educational and peer review inspection process. Inspectors are pathologists and other laboratory professionals who combine their extensive knowledge of the science of pathology with proper quality assurance procedures to determine whether a laboratory meets the standards for accreditation.
