Measuring Our Services
The accuracy of test results is dependent upon proper collection, transportation and final handling of specimens. All specimens are maintained under controlled conditions throughout the entire process to ensure the highest integrity of results. Once specimens arrive at the Processing Center, the requisitions are immediately checked for correct clerical information; and for clotting, hemolysis and other factors before tests are performed.

We recognize that these specialized, highly sophisticated tests are critical to the identification of many diseases.

Accurate Results on Time
From the moment your tests are ordered until they are completed, all information is entered into one of the most modern computer systems available. The system and software are continually updated by Network Reference Lab's team of computer experts and on-site programmers. The combination of a high-tech computer system and automated equipment results in a level of accuracy and timeliness that is difficult to match.
