ISO 15189:2007

ISO 15189:2007 is the international standard specifically for clinical laboratories. It addresses the quality management system and technical competence of a medical laboratory in order for it to better serve the needs of both patients and clinical personnel responsible for the care of those patients. The standard encompasses provisions for the pre-analytical phase to the post-analytical phase of medical laboratory services, including advice to users, collection of patient samples, analysis of samples, interpretation of test results, acceptable turnaround times, how testing is to be provided in a medical emergency and the laboratory's role in the education and training of its health care staff.

ISO 15189:2007 is a universal seal of quality that can have a profound influence on things that deserve to be taken seriously - such as safety, reliability and efficiency in the clinical laboratory. Obtaining the first ISO 15189:2007 accreditation in the Philippines affirms the NKTI Medical Laboratory’s commitment to the highest standards of quality.
