Institute for Testing & Analysis of Biomedical Instruments (InTAB®) perhaps requires no introduction to anyone having awareness about medical device testing and calibration because of its ever presence in this field from its very inception in 2006.
InTAB® has all along being striving to create an awareness among hospitals, research institutions, laboratories and such other institutions as well as the public at large regarding the unavoidable attention to be bestowed upon in maintaining International standards in the upkeep of sophisticated electro medical devices that are widely in use in the contemporary scenario.
Because of these committed endeavor InTAB® has been successful in enabling many a medical institution to obtain NABH/NABL, and ISO accreditation and perhaps your own institution might be one among that.
Now that InTAB® has been elevated to a place of recognition by the granting of accreditation by National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL), a constituent body of Quality Council of India (QCI), It is also significant and heartening to note that InTAB® is the only one lab of its kind in the whole of India for both at lab and onsite facility for safety testing and calibration of medical devices. InTAB® is the pioneering institution in India that could be proud of such an achievement.
What is NABL Accreditation?
National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) is a full member (MRA signatory) to International Laboratory Accreditation Co-operation (ILAC) as well as Asia Pacific Accreditation Co-operation (APLAC) since 2000.NABL accreditation is the topmost recognition that could be awarded to any scientific research laboratory engaged in the test/ calibration of highly sensitive equipment of diverse kind.
This accreditation authorises the laboratory to issue Internationally accepted Test/ Calibration reports considered to be equivalent to the reports issued by laboratories accredited by 76 accreditation bodies in 64 economies .
- Calibration by NABL accredited lab alone could guarantee performance of equipment absolute safety of the patients as well as the personnel who handle it.
- A gateway for NABH /NABL, ISO, JCI accreditation for hospitals and health care providers.
- Provides quality in the health care sector
