Quality Assurance


NationWide Laboratories upholds the highest standards of quality in all aspects of our work. We are proud to hold full accreditation by the United Kindom Accreditation Service (UKAS) and adhere to stringent quality compliance in all our services.

What does UKAS accreditation mean for you?

  • You can trust the result when making a diagnosis.
  • It is your assurance that the work has been carried out by NationWide Laboratories to the standard required for your purpose.
  • NationWide Laboratories is annually assessed by independent experts.
  • You can be confident that the agreed or specified methods and procedures have been followed.
  • Measurements are traceable to national and international standards.
  • Tests performed on your sample are the best available and are consistently precise and accurate.

NationWide Laboratories holds the UKAS ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation. This is an internationally recognised standard for accreditation for tests provided by laboratories that includes assessment of the quality, administrative and technical systems in operation and provides reassurance to clients of the accuracy of the results generated.

As part of the commitment to quality, NationWide Laboratories also participates in externally audited quality assessment (EQA) schemes offered by LGC, Public Health England, RIQAS, UK NEQAS and VETQAS. Participation in further Proficiency Testing schemes like EQAs shows commitment to improving performance as these are an independent and confidential verification of the testing process.

If you have a specific query about our accreditation or EQAs and what they mean for your results, please contact us where an adviser can help you.
