LITOMAN LAB

Laboratory

Litoman laboratory is a private licensed laboratory and is run by highly experienced qualified laboratory scientists. The laboratory commenced work in 1995 with the following departments

  • Heamatoly
  • Bacteriology
  • Biochemistry
  • Immunology –serology
  • Hormones

It is equipped with modern new autoanalysers in biochemistry, heamatology , sperm quality analyzer, cardiac reader, blood gases etc. Lists of laboratory tests follows.

Special tests which are not performed in our laboratory are sent to reference laboratories in Cyprus and abroad.                                     

Blood collections are performed daily in the laboratory as well as in the wards of LITO private hospital.

Litoman laboratory is providing services for the health care schemer of many insurance companies and union medical funds (ΑΗΚ, ΑΤΗΚ,ΕΤΥΚ, ΕΚ,ΠΕΟ). Our laboratory is also authorized to perform the laboratory tests needed for health certificates for work permit and tests needed for food handlers.

To ensure the quality of the work performed in our laboratory internal quality controls and external quality controls assessment schemes are in effect.

Internal quality control assessment is run weekly from control material obtained from recognized firms abroad as suggested by the manufacturers.

External quality control assessment scheme with ΕΣΕΑΠ is in effect since 1996. 280 laboratories from Greece and Cyprus are taking part in this external quality control assessment and our results are very good.

Litoman laboratory is also taking part in the program for the safe disposal of laboratory waste products.
