The Laboratory is equipped with the latest model automatic processors/analyzers. Having gained recognition by The Hong Kong Laboratory Accreditation Scheme (HOKLAS) for Medical Testing since March 2012, we can say that our Laboratory is one of the best local laboratories providing an efficient, reliable integrated laboratory testing services in meeting public expectation and striving for continuing quality improvement.
With the final phase of implementation of the Laboratory Information Management System (LIS), the Laboratory has the ability to integrate various Automatic Analyzers and can be attached directly to the system to perform automatic results that could be uploaded and downloaded as needed. The LIS is also integrated to the Hospital’s HIS which enables laboratory reports to be viewed in CHIS. Efficiency of reporting has been much improved and appreciated.
