We serve the State of Qatar by providing a comprehensive range of esoteric and routine diagnostic testing performed at our world class CAP and ASHI accredited facilities. We are now embracing the future and moving towards the era of precision medicine. We are introducing new technologies, state-of-the-art laboratories with Molecular and Genomic testing that will lead to more effective pre-emptive diagnostic regimens for optimal patient care and a healthier population in Qatar.
