Quality and certification
Our laboratory is the very definition of high-quality laboratory analytics. We achieve this by being committed to a quality policy that is universally recognised by our management team and our employees. In addition to continually monitoring our workflows, we also regularly adapt our processes in line with specific requirements. Our analytics are always based on the state of the art.
Our laboratory is certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management and 14001:2015 Environmental Management.
In addition to the laboratory management being granted the right to work as an independent entity by the Canton of Zurich, medica has FOPH approval to carry out molecular genetic testing on humans and Swissmedic approval to perform diagnostic or epidemiological testing in the field of transmissible human diseases.
The laboratory is recognised as a category B FAMH advanced training centre for clinical chemistry, clinical immunology, medical genetics and medical microbiology. Zurich Pathology Centre is also recognised as a category C SIWF advanced training centre for pathology and category A centre for cytology and molecular pathology.
All subcontracted analyses are carried out by partner laboratories that are accredited or meet the legal requirements for carrying out the analyses (e.g. Swissmedic approval to perform microbiological testing to identify or rule out transmissible diseases, FOPH approval to carry out genetic testing on humans).
