Eurofins Central Laboratory uses several well-recognized, international quality standards and regulatory guidelines to control its activities. Our Global Quality System is founded on the following quality standards:
- College of American Pathologists (CAP)
- ISO/IEC 17025:2005
- OECD Good Laboratory Practice guidelines
Verification of technical competence is achieved by several means. For each accredited test there must be a documented analytical procedure, documentation of the analytical validation of the test, evidence of suitable ongoing test performance through internal QC, EQA and CAP (proficiency testing). Additionally, measurements should be recorded based on recognized national and/or international standards where applicable.
