Criteria for accepting samples
As part of our commitment to quality, TissuPath seeks your assistance in ensuring compliance with NPAAC 2018 – Requirements for Medical Pathology Services and AS ISO 15189-2013 Medical Laboratories – Requirements for Quality and Competence for specimen and request form labelling.
TissuPath can only accept request forms with a minimum of three patient identifiers. Three patient identifiers are preferable for patient specimens, however two can be accepted when three cannot be accommodated. Specimens which are not labelled with two identifiers are considered to be inadequately labelled, in such cases the specimen processing will be halted until the specimen can be adequately identified.
Compliance with these standards ensures TissuPath’s continual accreditation for NATA purposes.
