Metropolis Health Services, India's only multinational chain of diagnostics centre has become the first and only Indian diagnostic laboratory to be SANAS (South African National Accreditation System) accredited.

The SANAS is recognized by the South African Government as the single national accreditation body, that gives formal recognition to Laboratories, Certification Bodies, Inspection Bodies, Proficiency Testing Scheme Providers and Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) test facilities, certifying its competencies to carry out qualified tests/tasks.

On the occasion Dr G S K Velu, managing director, Metropolis Health Services said, "We consider it as a great privilege to have been bestowed the SANAS accreditation. It's also a matter of great pride that with this, Metropolis has the highest number of primary global accreditations in the country. This follows our recent global accreditations from CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments), CAP (College Of American Pathologists) and domestic accreditation from NABL (National Accreditation Board for testing and Calibration Laboratories), and reflects our endeavor to constantly offer quality and premium services to our customers. These accreditations have raised the bar of expectations internally while also ensuring and reaffirming Metropolis' quality assurance system and technical competence."
