BIOLOGICAL SAMPLING CENTRE / LABORATORY

The City Clinic CHIREC Louise is a specimen collection centre conveniently located a few minutes’ walk from our Cavell and Parc Leopold laboratories. Easy parking is available, and we have multilingual staff to greet you in French, Dutch, Spanish or English. We cultivate a sense of welcome and comfort. Once your samples have been taken, you can enjoy complimentary drinks and croissants.

The CHIREC laboratories perform medical analyses using powerful and recognised techniques that meet quality objectives, the rules of good laboratory practice, and safety and ethics rules.

To ensure this level of quality, the laboratories regularly undergo various external audits and also have ISO 9001 certification.

The CHIREC Department of Clinical Biology is situated in Brussels and the province of Walloon Brabant, with four laboratories open around the clock (Cavell, Braine-l'Alleud, Parc Leopold and St Anne-St Remi).

In addition to medical analysis, the laboratories offer the expertise of their eight clinical pathologists, who are always accessible to advise prescribers on the choice of analysis, results interpretation and optimal use of clinical biology.

Assay results are delivered by post or e-mail, according to the wishes of the prescribing physician. A copy of the results can also be sent to you on request.

Today, many patients, doctors, clinics, schools and institutions rely on the CHIREC Group’s laboratories; they deal with more 300,000 requests per year, equivalent to more than four million analyses.
