Number of the accredited laboratories by the Ministry of Health is limited in Turkey and only one of them has the ability to perform virus analysis. Official Approval is published on date of 19.11.2015 (Nr. E8567) which allows performing virus tests at the laboratories in other countries who have accreditation for regarding analysis parameters and follow GLP requirements, due to inability to perform all virus analysis and considerable number of product to be analysed.
