Scope of activities

The Laboratory Control Section as the Official Medicines Control Laboratory (OMCL) supports regulatory authority in controlling the quality of medicinal products for human use and in some cases medical devices available on the market in Slovak Republic.

Independently from manufacturers, thus without any conflict of interest OMCL ensures surveillance of the quality, safety and efficacy.

The laboratory section consists of two departments based on used analytical methods:

  • Physical Chemical Methods Department
  • Biological Methods Department

The samples of the medicinal products are re-tested using chemical, physical, physicochemical, pharmaceutical-technical, biological methods and methods in pharmacognosy, to confirm that all the medicinal products meet the required quality parameters for safe use. 

Simultaneously the Laboratory Control Section is responsible for administrative batch release of vaccines and medicinal products derived from human blood and plasma.
