Our UKAS compliant labs use various monitoring techniques, including inspections and audits, to promote confidence in laboratory results. This ensures the quality of the data generated and compliance with accrediting bodies, such as Clinical Pathology Accreditation (CPA).
Our labs run validation on all tests offered before we make them available to you. We collect at least 400uL of blood (about 10 drops). And the lab analysers that test the sample require under 100uL of blood — research papers typically put levels required for accuracy at 60uL.
Of course abnormal results can occur, which is why we advocate regular monitoring rather than snapshot testing.
