icddr,b extends its laboratories service operation to 24 hours a day

Starting from 15 July 2019, icddr,b’s globally recognised diagnostic centre at Mohakhali, Dhaka is now operating its services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. This will inevitably distribute the patient volume throughout the day and effectively reduce the waiting time for them.

icddr,b laboratories are the only labs in Bangladesh accredited under International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 15189 (quality and competence) and ISO 15190 (safety) for 400+ different tests and parameters.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Niyaz Ahmed, Senior Director, Laboratory Sciences and Services Division at icddr,b said, “While this extension of operation will cost us additional resources, we would like to make our services more accessible to all walks of life. Our highly skilled, dedicated scientists and clinicians, along with state of the art laboratories will now be able to serve more patients with high quality diagnosis which they have always been relied on.”
