Laboratory medicine is impacted by constant transformations that affect the products offered. The demands are growing, both internally and externally.

Externally there are the legal and regulatory requirements, the new expectations and needs of clients (requesting clinical staff, patients and their families, paying sources and researchers), the recommendations and guidelines of scientific societies, technological innovations, the pressure of competition and suppliers with a variety of new products.

Internally, laboratory managers and their teams need to demonstrate increasing levels of technical excellence on a daily basis to ensure the reliability of their results. However, with ever short delivery times, expanded menu of tests offered and lower prices to maintain their competitiveness.


Among these routines, the following stand out:

Pre-analytical phase

It involves the qualification of samples that depend on the preparation of the patient, the collection performed, the packaging of the samples and the transport.

Analytical phase

It includes qualified products, materials and services, control and processing of biological material and teams performing tests.

Post-analytical phase

There is a relevant clinical laboratory correlation and the exact clinical interpretation of the results.

For this reason, even in the face of a great development of analytical processes, including methodological evolution and automation, publications still point to a chance of errors occurring within the analytical phase.

The rapid evolution of processes has also required better training of professionals and the adoption of effective management tools by laboratories, to ensure the quality of results.

International standardization institutes have described guidelines in this regard, accreditation bodies have encouraged the adoption of these guidelines and, in some cases, government agencies have been expanding the basic requirements for the operation of laboratories and their suppliers.

Proficiency Testing

Periodically checks the accuracy
of the results.​​

PRM 0009

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Certified Reference Material Producer

Controllab has been accredited as a Certified Reference Material Producer (MRC) since 2016 by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE), under the PMR 0009 number. The assessment of this conformity is carried out according to the requirements established in ABNT NBR standards ISO 17034 and Inmetro, thus ensuring competence for the production of MRCs, according to the Scope of Accreditation.

CAL 0214

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Calibration Laboratory

In December 2002, the Calibration Laboratory was accredited by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE). With this recognition, it became an integral part of the Brazilian network of accredited laboratories, under nº214. Since then, it is periodically evaluated for the maintenance and/or extension of accreditation.

Cgcre is signatory to the Mutual Recognition Arrangements of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and Interamerican Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC).

PEP 0003

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Control Laboratory

In September 2011, Controllab was accredited by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE) as a proficiency test provider, under nº PEP0003. Initially as part of a pilot project by Inmetro, this accreditation was based on ILAC G13: 2007 and included several clinical and hemotherapy tests. In the periodic evaluations of this accreditation, new segments and tests are included and the evaluation is now conducted according to ABNT NBR ISO/IEC 17043.

This accreditation attests to Controllab’s technical competence to develop and conduct proficiency tests in accordance with international requirements and enables it to be recognized in other countries, in accordance with mutual recognition agreements signed by Brazil in Mercosur, the Americas and Europe.
