Ethical Committee

From time to time ethical questions and dilemmas appear from within our diagnostic and research work. We take a pragmatic view which permeates our approach as a company: all our work and undertakings are geared towards acting in the best interests of the patients whom we serve. This view overrides any other consideration. Nonetheless, we recognise that having views from outside the laboratory and company provides us with both guidance and reassurance about what we do. We are pleased that during the academic years 2007 – 2012 the following people have kindly agreed to serve on our behalf.
