Founded in 1975 as a small laboratory to deal with in-patients’ needs, “Le Betulle” Clinical Laboratory first obtained an AGREEMENT (1982) and then, in 2000, ACCREDITATION with the SSR (regional health service), and also 9001 ISO CERTIFICATION of Quality Management System; important acknowledgements of our modernization and quality of service, and a guarantee for patients of constant updating and control on each phase of the process.
Besides our central facility, thanks to six more test locations for the drawing of samples in the district, it provides an important medical resource for users from a large area. The laboratory runs tests on various clinical specimens (blood, urine, seminal fluid, etc.) finalised to the study of the most diverse pathologies. Together with tests carried out as an accredited SSR centre, we also run those requested by private centres, such as for patients hosted in retirement homes, as well as those for Companies who have to comply with Decree Law 81 (9/4/2008), in the matter of workplace safety.
