The Dubai and Fujairah laboratories of Thumbay Labs, the leading network of private diagnostic labs in the region owned and operated by Thumbay Group – UAE, have been awarded accreditation by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), the worldwide leaders in laboratory quality assurance. The central facility of Thumbay Labs in Ajman, the Center for Advanced Biomedical Research & Innovation (CABRI) had won the prestigious accreditation earlier. With this, Thumbay Labs has emerged as one of the largest networks of CAP-accredited private labs in the region offering a wide portfolio of advanced tests with proven standards in quality, accuracy and precision.

Mr. Thumbay Moideen, Founder President of Thumbay Group said that the prestigious CAP-accreditation was a testament to the excellent services being provided by Thumbay Labs. “CAP-accreditation to more of our labs underlines the quality and accuracy of diagnostic services delivered by Thumbay Labs. This esteemed recognition will further improve the world-class services available to our patients,” he added.
