The laboratory actively participates in a nationally certified Inter-laboratory survey program whereby we are evaluated in relationship to Laboratories nationwide. Collection and handling, verification of patient identity, and specimen processing prior to analysis are given prime consideration. Validity of the data obtained from the specimen is highly dependent upon the excellence of laboratory staff technique, to include proper operation of equipment, use of high quality reagents, and adherence to a rigid quality control program.
