It will give you the possibility to raise your service to a high level of reliability and accuracy to your customers, with the support of the international recognition of ONAC. It also gives you the advantage that the results delivered by your laboratory will be accepted in the member countries of the ILAC MRA agreements.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a laboratory that performs analysis with quality and with all the technical knowledge in clinical tests, at the top of this section or in our Official Directory of Accredited organizations, you can consult the list of accredited clinical laboratories.

View profile

The services provided by clinical laboratories are essential for patient care and for any health system because their results are the main input for medical decision making. For this reason, in ONAC, we have prepared ourselves to have the technical competence to meet the accreditation requests of the laboratories that perform tests related to the sector and thus contribute to strengthening the quality infrastructure of the country.

Description

In the accreditation scheme of Clinical Laboratories, we evaluate the technical competence for the performance of tests under the compliance of the requirements of the ISO 15189 standard. The fulfillment of all its requirements allows us to guarantee that the clinical laboratories have a management system, the necessary infrastructure, competent personnel, and the necessary equipment. Thus, in the end, the patients have the security and confidence in the clinical results and the subsequent medical diagnosis derived from them. Thanks to the multilateral recognition agreements of which ONAC is part, these results are recognized nationally and internationally.

Scope

In ONAC we have been concerned in recent years to cover all the needs of the market. Today, we have the technical capacity to attend evaluations in several disciplines, such as clinical bacteriology, biochemistry, hemostasis, immunology, genetics, hematology, mycology, parasitology, pathology, virology, mycology and virology. Other services or disciplines such as clinical physiology, diagnostic imaging, and medical physics could also make use of this scheme.
