The Lab has two main Departments: one dedicated to the Clinical Analysis and another to the Water and Food Analysis.
In order to ensure the quality of the obtained results, both departments are subject to meticulous quality controls and different programs of external quality evaluation.
The Department of Clinical Analysis participates in programs organized by INSA – National Health Institute Dr. Ricardo Jorge, UK NEQAS and RIQAS.
The External Quality Control in the Food and Water Department is assured by our participation in the following programs:
- RELACRE — Physical-Chemical Parameters and Sampling LGC
- LGC AQUACHECK Water Chemistry
- LGC QWAS Water Microbiology
- LGC QMS Food Microbiology
