About OneLab

History

In 2012, the President instructed the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) to initiate the harmonization of testing laboratories in the country. The challenge at that time was to establish a framework that will address issues on harmonization, collaboration, and interfacing among laboratories while respecting their mandates and regulatory functions. This brought about the establishment of a laboratory network known as the “One-stop Laboratory Services for Global Competitiveness (OneLab).

What is OneLab

OneLab is a Network of laboratories anchored on an IT Platform to provide a referral system for testing and calibration services at a single touch point.  It aims to provide customers with convenient and easy access to laboratory testing and calibration services.It envisions to broaden public access to testing services of all DOST laboratories and Non-DOST laboratories to provide standardized services and fees. It also provides a timely and accurate test and calibration results.

Onelab visions to be Globally-recognized network of analytical and calibration laboratories distinguished for quality, proficient services and ultimate customer convenience.

Currently, OneLab has 16 DOST Regional Standard and Testing Laboratories(RSTL's), 6 DOST Research and Development Institute(RDI) and 13 Non-DOST testing laboratories. For full details please click the Member Laboratories section.
