North Clinic's laboratory is a moderate complexity lab, which is accredited by COLA, a federally approved laboratory certifying agency. Accreditation is given only to laboratories that apply rigid standards of quality in day-to-day operations, demonstrate continued accuracy in the performance of proficiency testing, and pass a rigorous on-site laboratory survey. Surveys are performed every two years and our lab prides itself in its excellent ratings. Our North Clinic laboratory has earned COLA accreditation as a result of a long-term commitment to provide quality service to our patients.
The laboratory is staffed by skilled laboratory technicians, who are trained to provide high quality, accurate test results. Our lab performs many tests "in-house" to provide timely assistance to our physicians in diagnosing your medical problems.
Basic laboratory services are available at all five of our offices with more comprehensive chemistry and coagulation testing performed at our main lab located in our Osseo office. North Clinic uses LabCorp for reference tests that we do not perform "in-house".Laboratory Excellence Award
This award signifies our Robbinsdale laboratory's commitment to performing quality patient testing and overall laboratory practices. The Laboratory Excellence Award is achieved by those COLA laboratories that are found to be compliant with all COLA essential and required criteria at the time of their on-site survey.
