SYNLAB is the largest chain of laboratories in Europe
SYNLAB Eesti is the largest medical laboratory in Estonia and has been operating since 1996. Our main area of activity is the provision of laboratory services to family doctors and medical specialists, hospitals, occupational health care centres and other institutions connected to the medical industry. Private customers can also have their health checked at SYNLAB laboratories and blood sample collection points by selecting health check packages and single tests and consultations with laboratory doctors via the patient portal minu.synlab.ee or on site. Anonymous tests for sexually transmitted diseases can also be performed at home via the testikodus.ee environment.
In Estonia we handle around 16,000 sample materials on a daily basis and perform more than 7.5 million laboratory analyses annually. Our list of analyses consists of more than 200 different titles of on-site tests required in routine clinical practice. Furthermore, with the help of partner laboratories, our clients have access to almost all laboratory tests from all areas of laboratory medicine known today, including highly specific and rarely ordered tests – amounting to thousands of available analyses. For more information on analyses, please refer to our Laboratory A-Z.
Exports of health care services – mainly to Finland and to a lesser extent also Lithuania, the Netherlands and Norway – make up a third of the company’s turnover.
SYNLAB employs almost 300 people in Estonia. Working at our 17 laboratories and sample collection points are laboratory doctors and specialists, bioanalysts (laboratory workers), reception nurses, logistics specialists, customer support staff and auxiliary and other support staff.
In addition to performing laboratory analyses, we also support doctors, nurses and private clients with a plethora of information material, logistics solutions for the transporting of samples, dedicated customer service and a regular training programme. We organise frequent customer training events at the SYNLAB Training Centre based on the wishes of doctors and nurses. Find out more here.
SYNLAB Eesti complies with the requirements of ISO 15189 (Medical laboratories – Particular requirements for quality and competence) and has been accredited as a medical laboratory by the Estonian Accreditation Centre (accreditation certificate and annex listing methods and tests).
