Research & Development

Translational research is the basis for the testing performed at Metropolis Laboratories. A reference lab must have an exhaustive test menu and it is important to add new tests whenever there is a demand due to increased awareness. Some of these tests give an added value to the organization and an edge over the peer labs.
