Diagnostic start-up DIVOC Health has received National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) accreditation for one of its labs in Delhi.
Recently, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) also reiterated the importance of having NABL accreditation. It also informed the Delhi High Court (HC) that the certification is a must for enrollment of private labs for Covid-19 testing as it confirms the readiness of labs to undertake molecular testing of SARS-Cov-2.
The NABL certification will ensure that the laboratory is standardized and is adhering to quality protocols.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Kanav Kahol, CEO, DIVOC Health said, “We at DIVOC aim to bring market solutions that address the fundamental needs of the healthcare system. We have promised our customers to get each and every lab by DIVOC accredited. Accreditation is important for the laboratory and its customers as it ensures quality testing and outcome. Providing accurate diagnosis to our patients and adhering to the technology standards set by us is our first and foremost priority.”
