Hi-Precision Diagnostics (HPD), the country’s leading medical laboratory, has received its COVID Testing Lab accreditation to perform the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test, which is the gold standard in COVID-19 confirmatory testing. With this accreditation, HPD intensifies its mission to serve with compassion and provide quality healthcare for the Filipino people.
The COVID Testing Lab Accreditation is an outstanding achievement, indeed, for the HPD team which is proud and honored to play an active role in the country’s initiative to augment the daily testing capacity and combat the COVID-19 pandemic. After all, amidst the crisis and despite time restrictions, the HPD team was able to complete and comply with all requirements associated with the on-site inspection, documentation, proficiency testing, facilities, equipment, workflow, and biosafety standards. This vigorous 5-stage accreditation was carried out by several healthcare authorities namely, the World Health Organization (WHO), Department of Health (DOH), and Research Institute of Tropical Medicine (RITM).
The PCR test will initially be performed by June 3, 2020 through HPD’s partnership with the local government units of Pasig and Valenzuela. Joint efforts with Quezon City LGUs will also be happening soon. However, details for the availability of PRC testing for walk-in patients have yet to be announced.
