Declaration of the Quality Policy :
MEDITEST is ISO 9001: 2015 certified in all its business activities, including metrology.
MEDITEST is COFRAC accredited as of March 2014, according to reference ISO 17025. (Accredited Laboratory No. 2-5602, as listed at www.cofrac.fr).
Internal expertise and skills
MEDITEST’s senior management has chosen to focus internal skills on two priority areas:
Knowledge and practices corresponding to the knowledge and practices of its clients.
Knowledge and practices of a quality approach within a company.
Therefore, internal actors directly linked to MEDITEST clients are professionals offering the following fields of expertise:
Radiation and imaging in medicine, complemented by professional practices in hospitals: in radiation physics, nuclear medicine, and neuroradiology;
Health engineering and, in particular, biomedical engineering with experience in an oncology center, as well as industry practice in medical imagery equipment manufacturing;
Physical sciences and, in particular, instrumentation practiced in nuclear physics;
Measurement and image engineering with a pragmatic approach to performance and certification;
Mastery of first-level technical maintenance;
Logistics and transport of high-tech equipment.
Moreover, even if MEDITEST’s employees are already very quality-oriented, the company's quality system is led by two major functions: Responsibility for Quality and Responsibility for the MEDIX LAB Laboratory.
Responsibility for Quality
The entrusted responsibility ensures compliance with the organization’s ISO 9001 and ISO 17025 standards. This priority role is to secure MEDIX LAB’s ability to carry out calibration services with the required quality level. Additionally, it must help improve the company’s performance and the satisfaction of all clients, staff, suppliers, and partners. These responsibilities should guarantee the deployment of the quality policy set by senior management in accordance with ISO 9001 and ISO 17025 standards.
Responsibility for the MEDIX LAB Laboratory
To ensure good business practices, entrusted responsibility ensures compliance with the organization’s ISO 9001 and ISO 17025 standards. This priority role is to maintain the laboratory in working condition according to standards and ensure compliance with the ISO 17025 Standard for calibration services rendered.
These responsibilities are directly related to the validation of the technical and scientific choices concerning the construction and development of the laboratory and the reinforcement of the activity by developing additional services tailored to clients’ needs (development of new methods and procedures).
Moreover, the acquisition and development of expertise have been structured by the 2011 contract for a partnership with the CEA-LNE-LNHB and the signing of an "EXPERTISE LICENSE AGREEMENT FOR CALIBRATION IN IONIZING RADIATION DOSIMETRY."
The management of MEDIX LAB laboratory is under the responsibility of senior management. Its role is to ensure the functioning and development of the laboratory in line with the accreditation scope and market demands. The results of MEDIX LAB measurements are consistent with international SI units.
