You have a life going on and cannot always stop drop and roll into our lab. But that shouldn’t keep you back from staying safe and tested at all times.
There’s no room for error. The equipment we use leaves a zero percent mistake margin. That means one hundred percent accuracy for every test taken. Cool.
A specimen that doesn’t change hands and isn’t tampered with doesn’t get contaminated. That doesn’t mean the process isn’t monitored. It just means the standards are higher.
