Medical analysis request

Dear clients,
Due to the COVID-19 situation, it is unfortunately possible that some analyses exceed the TAT.
Research projects are temporarily suspended.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

 

Sciensano is recognized by INAMI-RIZIV for the analyses of clinical microbiology which are performed in our national reference centres. It are mainly second-line analyses (confirmations, typings, etc.) although also first-line analyses for less usual pathogens are performed. Sciensano is accredited ISO15189.
