GINA, GUYANA, Saturday, January 7, 2017
Citizens will continue to benefit from a high standard of services with the certification of 10 laboratories by the Guyana National Bureau of Standards (GNBS).
A laboratory certification is the process by which a third party gives written assurance and recognition that a laboratory is conforming to specified requirements.
Eight medical laboratories and two non–medical ones were certified in keeping with the National Laboratory Standard GYS 170, which is the general requirement for the operation of a laboratory.
The eight medical labs that have been certified are those from the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC), Woodlands Hospital, Dr. Balwant Singh Hospital, Eureka, Medical Arts Centre, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, Georgetown Medical Centre Inc., and Quest Medical Laboratory. The other two are the Guyana Rice Development Board’s (GRDB) Central Laboratory and the Kaizen Environmental Services.
