Today, an integrated business operating model has been developed to further separate operations.

Accreditation to ISO 15189 by Accreditation Canada (AC) Diagnostics is a mark of excellence recognized around the world. We assess the ability of a facility to perform medical testing or the collection of specimens with formal recognition of this competence through accreditation to our ISO 15189 Plus™ requirements. It also provides facilities with the tools they need to standardize their processes, address diminishing resources and set a quality benchmark.
