In 2006, PathLab Medical Laboratories Ltd was the first private medical laboratory in Hong Kong to be accredited to HOKLAS 15189 in the broad areas of the laboratory. We are accredited in the following disciplines:
Our laboratory accreditation number is 805S. Since our scope of accredited tests is updated from time to time, to view a current list of our tests, please view our scope from the HKAS website.
Laboratory accreditation is awarded after stringent on-site inspections by HOKLAS-approved pathologists and scientists from HK and overseas. HOKLAS medical testing standards are based on the requirements of ISO 15189:2012. Inspection of policies, procedures, records, internal Quality Control, and External Quality Assurance Programs (EQAP) were all part of the process.
ISO 15189 is now the world-recognized medical laboratory accreditation standard. Scores of countries have adopted it. HOKLAS has concluded mutual recognition agreements/arrangements (MRA) with most countries worldwide.
PathLab went through the medical testing accreditation process because it wishes to provide doctors with the highest standard of laboratory results (hence reliable and accurate diagnostic information) for the care of their patients. It has served Hong Kong, Kowloon, and New Territories physicians, hospitals, and other medically-related institutions for over 40 years.
Laboratory Director Mrs. Marianne Leung said, “PathLab has never been prouder than to achieve this international standard accreditation. We will endeavor to keep our commitment to quality and maintain our service and technology standards.”
