The MLCN registrar, who congratulated Lifebridege on the award, urged the organisation to sustain the high quality and standard service delivery that earned it the award.

He said that laboratory samples were very critical in determining the direction of  about 70 per cent of treatment and monitoring of patients.

“70 per cent of results provided by laboratories is what is used for treatment and monitoring of patients.

“The era of taking laboratory samples to three laboratories before getting results is over’’, he said.

Federal Capital Territory

Erhabor described Lifebridege as the first privately-owned laboratory with ISO 15189 certificate in the Federal Capital Territory.
