Laboratory support

When it comes to laboratories, our mission is to assist scientific, technical and laboratory staff so as to bring the laboratories at UM to a world-class level.

To this end, we provide support across a wide range of activities including project management, formulating Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), asset management as well as waste management across all faculties. Furthermore, we provide guidance to laboratories seeking to achieve certification or accreditation, particularly with regard to ISO 17025.

We work closely with other administrative support services at UM, namely the Health & Safety Office, the Office for Human Resources Management & Development, the Finance Office, the Procurement Directorate, and the Estates, Facilities & Capital Development Directorate, to ensure that laboratories meet the desired standards.
