The laboratory has to demonstrate that it can conduct the test in the most safe and clinically acceptable manner. Regulatory agencies oversee the laboratory and determine guidelines that laboratories must adhere to to be able to pass to be able to carry out tests.

These standards ensure that tests conducted at the lab responsible for the care of patients yield dependable outcomes.

Skylab is fully dedicated to providing full healthcare diagnostics to our patients by International Standards.

Quality is a Thought Revolution

Quality is founded on Respect for Humanity

Quality is not the outcome of an accident; it comes from a conscious effort.

Quality starts with the customer.

Customer complaints are an essential part of quality improvement

The problematic issue for lab personnel the laboratory is ” How reliable are your laboratory data/reports?” The primary obligation of laboratory staff is to find any error that might have occurred within the laboratory and fix this issue before sending results to the physician.

The results of tests performed by any person may differ due to three primary factors, namely. Pre-analytical analysis, post-analytical and analytical. These must be addressed effectively.

What are the requirements for our labs to improve their efficiency continuously, please customers, and ultimately achieve universally acclaimed accreditation?

The business focuses on the quality of its products and services.

What is Quality? “Quality is doing the right things and doing those things right”.

A solid foundation for quality will be established by building an enduring foundation in Quality Assurance; this will quickly lead to accreditation status. The main words will be “SAY WHAT YOU DO, DO WHAT YOU SAY & PROVE IT”.

What you do: Proper documentation of every activity

Follow the guidelines: Implement effectively what is written in the manual
