Mayo Clinic Laboratories > International

Setting the global standard of diagnostic care

Focused on quality

At Mayo Clinic Laboratories, test development is based on patient need and guided by quality management protocols modeled on standards and guidelines from the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute. Our extensive test validation includes a breadth of specimens with rare abnormalities. Our laboratories are CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited, and we participate in U.S. and international proficiency programs.

Commitment to education

The exchange of knowledge is a founding principle of Mayo Clinic. In this tradition, we provide a wide range of educational offerings to help our clients increase understanding.

  • Regionally based clinical specialists guide best practices through physician education.
  • Access to Mayo Clinic Laboratories education and insight articles.
  • Many courses offer CME credits.
  • Online trainings are available, such as “Dangerous Goods Shipping,” with printable certificates.

Enhanced patient outcomes

Mayo Clinic Laboratories is dedicated to the health and well-being of our patients, which means helping providers deliver care in their local settings through the utilization of our comprehensive subspecialty test menu. Our mission is grounded in our belief that the patient’s needs are paramount, and our clients receive access to:

  • Expert-developed algorithms that ensure the right patient receives the right test.
  • Testing for rare and complex conditions, with some of that testing exclusive to Mayo Clinic Laboratories.
  • Expeditious results due to continuous test processing.

We treat all of the specimens we receive with the same high degree of care and quality, regardless of where the sample is coming from. We could be testing a sample from a patient that lives in Rochester, Minnesota, or from someone that lives halfway across the world.”
