HCM CITY (VNS) — A microbiology laboratory at the HCM City Children's Hospital No.2 has received the ISO 15189 quality certification.

ISO 15189 is awarded by the International Organisation for Standardisation after a lengthy process and requires a medical laboratory to meet specific international quality requirements related to services, collection of patient samples, testing accuracy, turnaround time, and training of healthcare staff.

The laboratory is the eighth in Viet Nam to get the accreditation, be supported under the US President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, and get technical guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. — VNS
