High-quality laboratory tests are always the expression of the harmonious cooperation between clinical medicine, patient, and laboratory. Sampling and the transportation of the sample, analysis, laboratory medical interpretation, and even the transfer of results to clinical practice is a complex process. In order to make this process more transparent, eliminate possible sources of errors, and prepare the laboratory findings in a correct and reliable fashion, we have introduced a complete quality management system.
Since 2012, Diagnostiki Athinon has installed and operates the ISO 9001:2008 quality system. Ever since then, it operates consistently in accordance with the European quality guidelines. Since 2018 the quality system was updated to ISO 9001:2015 (Certificate Number 6133.159/18) certified by EQA Hellas for all the activities of the laboratory. The laboratory has been continuously participating since its establishment in Interlaboratory Quality Control Schemes (External Quality Control) as well as in specialized Quality Controls.
