External Tests / Referral Laboratories
We refer a number of specialist tests away for analysis to other laboratories. To ensure those labs are providing a quality service we annually check their UKAS accreditation status to ensure they are also accredited. This provides a level of assurance to us and our users.
Referral laboratory accreditation status is checked annually as part of the scheduled audit programme.

Please find below a list of our tests which may be analysed externally with samples requested and transported via the NDHT Biochemistry laboratory. Click on the name to find out more about the service provided and other related information. If the test you are enquiring about is not available on this page, please contact the Biochemistry department for further information.
