Labtests has been providing pathology service to the Auckland community since August 2009 and is one of the few laboratories to achieve full IANZ accreditation in its first audit.
At Labtests we recognise the importance of highly qualified staff, inspired leadership together with advanced information technology and automation to achieve service excellence.
Our purpose-built, state of the art laboratory was designed for optimised efficiency. As part of our approach we have invested in one of the world's largest Siemens Labcell® system, which contains eleven analysers.
From the moment the test tube is placed on the track, the Siemens LabCell® is able to manage the sample, recognising precisely where it needs to go and then routing it for optimal efficiency. This reduces the number of steps required to sort, process and archive samples.
Labtests has also invested in a Sysmex Haematology Sample Tracking (HST) line that manages thousands of blood samples a day with minimal downtime and operator intervention. Once a sample is loaded, there is no technical intervention until results are validated.
By removing unnecessary physical handling of the samples, the HST line cuts down any room for human error, increases safety, accuracy, and speed. The modular, flexible design of the HST line also allows for unlimited expansion and updating as capacity or technology advances.
Labtests has invested in robust information technology systems. We have 100% redundant capacity built into our IT system to protect against system or equipment failures.
