Al Sharq’s laboratory is a technological wonder. The unit has separate male and female blood collection rooms, both with chairs providing a high level of comfort along with fainting provisions for patients who are afraid of needles. Blood samples are bar-coded on the spot; meaning errors are virtually impossible, screening processes are ultra speedy, and results delivered efficiently.
All lab processes and equipment have attained EQAS (External Quality Assurance Scheme) standards, an international laboratory system for accreditation – meaning our patients have total peace of mind.
Our blood bank uses the latest gel technology system, giving us highly accurate scoring. Likewise, cross matching and blood bank testing is an accurate and speedy process. All fridges and freezers are centrally monitored and have alarm systems. Some tests are performed by two different technologies, utilizing different methodologies in order to ascertain optimum accuracy.
