The laboratory had passed the certifying audit by Australian NATA in 2008 and obtained ISO/IEC17025 Certification (Registration No.:15743). It is the first laboratory in Macau to obtain this internationally recognized certification, which requires strict compliance with NATA’s requirement on quality management of the laboratory’s operating system. Therefore, the safety and quality stability testing reports issued by our laboratory are accepted and recognized by the Hong Kong and Macau health authorities for registration of proprietary Chinese medicines.

The accredited testing contents are listed on the official website of Australia NATA. Currently, we provide safety testing for the following samples: 

  1. Chinese and Western medicine
