The added value of standards in laboratories – don’t feel ISOlated
Join the NBN & BVLT-ABTL event
Laboratory work requires absolute accuracy, reliability and timeliness. Hence the importance of quality management systems: covering all aspects of laboratory operations, including organisation, procedures and processes, they can help laboratory workers to coordinate the numerous complex activities involved and maintain a clear overview of the bigger picture.
ISO to the rescue
ISO (International Organisation for Standardization) has published a series of different standards for medical laboratories.
Don’t feel ISOlated!
Why attend the event?
- discover why the use of standards in biomedical laboratories is essential to guarantee competence, quality and safety;
- gain a clear picture of how to enhance laboratory quality in terms of accuracy, reliability and timeliness of reported test results;
- learn more about relevant standards for medical laboratories from experts in the field, such as the new standard ISO/IEC 17025, ISO 15189 and ISO 22870;
- share knowledge and food for thought with professionals in biomedical laboratory environments.
