Eurofins Central Laboratory Quality Assurance
Eurofins Central Laboratory Quality System
Eurofins Central Laboratory provides the highest quality services, accurate, timely results, and expert advice from our highly qualified team of experienced scientists. Because data integrity is of the utmost importance, we continually monitor both data quality and our laboratory operations to ensure that the highest standards are consistently maintained.
Eurofins Central Laboratory uses several well-recognized, international quality standards and regulatory guidelines to control its activities. Our Global Quality System is founded on the following quality standards:
- College of American Pathologists (CAP)
- ISO/IEC 17025:2017

Accreditations and Certifications
The Global Quality System of Eurofins Central Laboratory is designed to encompass the relevant aspects of both international and country-specific quality standards. Regulatory Accreditation Programs are continual processes: a laboratory remains accredited until otherwise notified. While a certificate provides effective and expiration dates, laboratories remain accredited while they wait for the receipt of a new certificate, even if the expiration date has passed. New certificates are posted to the website as soon as they are made available by the Regulatory or Accrediting Agency.
All current accreditations and certifications for our Eurofins Central Laboratory Shanghai testing facility are available for review in PDF file format as follows:
At Eurofins Central Laboratory we exercise every effort to achieve the highest level of standardization by managing our central safety laboratory operations in the United States, Europe, Singapore and China in the most effective and efficient way. Our exceptional level of standardization addresses the many challenges associated with the collection and integration of laboratory data from multiple laboratories with low to no standardization, or that apply different methodologies, reference ranges and/or operating procedures.
The application of standard operating procedures, uniform instruments, reagents and analytical methods for safety testing enable the use of global reference ranges, resulting in laboratory data that are completely and seamlessly combinable.
Eurofins Central Laboratory has a dedicated global standardization team in place that is responsible for executing internal and external proficiency programs including CAP, Randox and NGSP Level 1 testing programs. Between the Eurofins facilities, the same lot number of quality control materials are used and QC results are monitored on a recurrent basis.
