Quality & Competence

We work hard to continuously improve our quality management system in strict compliance with ISO 15189:2012 (Medical laboratories – Requirements for quality and competence). We proudly set ourselves the ambitious goal to become the first ISO 15189:2012 accredited Irish owned private lab in Ireland. The accreditation process which leads to this accreditation can only commence after a certain time period in order to show a history of continued compliance. Leeuwenhoek started services in 2017 and as such is in the process of accumulating exactly that evidence of compliance to ISO 15189:2012. This means samples are handled and processed by competent personnel, adhering to controlled procedures. And also, that all tests are performed using quality controls and calibrators through validated test methods. For tests currently not available in-house, we only outsource to ISO 15189 accredited reference laboratories.

Additional to the standard, we comply with applicable national and international regulations such as the Data Protection Act, Freedom of information Act and the Health and Social Care Professionals Act.

Our dedicated workers are Garda vetted and have a vast experience in clinical laboratory settings. Our quality manager worked in quality roles for over 20 years both in hospitals and with medical device manufacturers. He successfully led a clinical laboratory to become the first to be accredited to ISO 15189 in The Netherlands and is committed to achieving Leeuwenhoek’s goal in doing just the same.

As such, you can be assured that test results are reliable with a valuable interpretation and that all together you’ve put your trust in a competent health screening provider.
