Schedules of Accreditation
A small number of laboratory tests (particularly for new services) will be performed out of the scope of accreditation. If this is the case it will be clearly stated on the laboratory report that the test is not currently accredited.
Measurement uncertainty values, where applicable, are available on request.
The laboratories comply with the most appropriate and current best practice guidelines available, particularly those issued by the Association for Clinical Genomic Science.
