Processing and Testing

Testing is performed by Medical Technicians and Technologists, college-educated professionals who specialize in clinical laboratory science. They run the tests, look through the microscopes, report and assess the quality of results, and implement new methods. Our staff is committed to accurate and reliable test results. Each test method is monitored frequently by running specimens with known results, called “controls”. We also compare the results of every test method with those of hundreds of laboratories in nationwide “proficiency testing” programs. In addition, the laboratory is frequently inspected by a variety of agencies that monitor laboratory quality.
