Neuropathology and Ocular Pathology accreditation

Neuropathology is a UKAS accredited laboratory to ISO 15189:2012, the medical laboratory standard for quality and competence.

Our scope of accreditation can be found here - (pdf)

Please note that, in order to ensure that Neuropathology continues to offer the most up to date diagnostic repertoire, there will be tests that are incorporated by the laboratory in between accreditation inspections and, therefore, will be outside our scope of accreditation.

We would like to assure our users that we apply the same vigorous quality control procedures to all our tests and aim to move all tests into the UKAS scope as soon as possible.
