Established in 2005, in partnership with renowned histopathologist Dr. Mashal Al Nawab, Clinical Pathology Services (CPS) is the first purpose-built, stand-alone reference laboratory for clinical laboratory testing in the UAE. In addition to being the first and only Clinical Pathology Accredited CPA (UK) pathology laboratory outside the European Union, CPS was also the first UAE laboratory to achieve the General Civil Aviation Authority accreditation, for the purpose of carrying out drug and alcohol testing for the aviation industry.
CPS offers more than 2,000 tests and 40 disease profiles, with results reported in a timely, accurate and confidential manner. The company participates in external quality assurance programmes conducted by international quality assurance bodies, has access to an international referral network for specialised and esoteric testing in four continents, and holds affiliation agreements with Guys’ and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and King’s College Hospitals in the UK.
As a majority shareholder, Crescent Enterprises works closely with CPS management to achieve its vision of becoming the leading medical and diagnostic service provider of choice in the region. While providing strategic direction and assisting with corporate development, Crescent Enterprises also extends support functions to CPS in the areas of finance, legal, IT, HR and insurance.
