Homed-IQ works with certified partner laboratories to analyse our test samples. The laboratories that process our tests are ISO 15189 and DAkkS accredited. These labs comply with all EU regulations regarding laboratory diagnostics in addition to performing frequent internal quality checks and testing. ISO 15189 certified laboratories must also undergo regular inspections validating the accuracy of their testing. These laboratories do not only work with Homed-IQ- they process hundreds of thousands of samples each year for doctors, clinics, universities, and governments.
*The laboratories that analyze Homed-IQ test samples are ISO 15189 accredited. The only test performed in a non-ISO accredited laboratory is the Allergy Test. This test is performed in a smaller laboratory that is compliant to the Guidelines of the German Federal Medical Council (RiLiBÄK 2019).
Homed-IQ partners with some of the most prominent certified labs in the EU that conduct specialty medical diagnostics. These labs perform regular quality assurance testing and are the same labs many physicians use to perform their diagnostics. All tests that Homed-IQ offers have been validated by these laboratories to be suitable for home use. If you want to find out more about their validation processes, please contact us at [email protected] .
Homed-IQ offers at-home health testing that has been verified to be just as accurate as tests you receive at a doctor’s office or clinic. All of the at-home sample collection testing we offer has been thoroughly validated against traditional testing methods as conducted in doctor’s offices and clinics. That data is reviewed and approved by the certified Laboratory Director at each lab in our network and the Homed-IQ Medical Support Team.
Variation in test results is normal between labs, and is even possible within repeat tests in the same lab. However, all labs that Homed-IQ works with must demonstrate that their results meet a certain standard to ensure an acceptable level of precision with their reporting. While we have ensured that all of our partner laboratories meet and/or exceed the minimum standard for acceptable variation, you will always see a certain degree of variation in results between different labs. Variation between test results does not mean the overall interpretation has changed.
