NGHA Riyadh Sigma Verification of Performance

NGHA Riyadh becomes not just the first laboratory in Saudi Arabia to consistently attain Sigma verification, but more broadly is the first laboratory in the Middle East to do so.  NGHA Riyadh started their first verification with more than 130 assays on multiple instruments. Now they have expanded to more than 175 assays.

National Guard Hospital Administration Riyadh - Sigma Verification of Performance

Original Verification: May 5th, 2016
Duration of Current Verification: Juyl 1st, 2019 through August 30th, 2020

King Abdulaziz Medical City in Riyadh, with a bed capacity of 1501, commenced its operations in May 1983. Since then, it has continued expanding, while providing services for a rapidly growing patient population in all of its catchments areas. Today, King Fahad National Guard Hospital has evolved to be part of the King Abdulaziz Medical City with many other prominent medical centers. Since its inauguration in February 2001; and within a short period, KAMC has been recognized as a distinguished healthcare provider.

The verification was completed on a number of ARCHITECT instruments, which were internally names APS, Integration, and Statlab and Kasch laboratories. The analytes verified include:
