What is Alberta Precision Laboratories?
Alberta Precision Laboratories (APL) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alberta Health Services (AHS), delivering high-quality, responsive diagnostic lab services to Albertans, across our healthcare system.
APL is an integrated model, ensuring consistency and coordination of high quality lab medicine services, consolidating the work previously provided by multiple organizations in Alberta (including AHS, Calgary Lab Services (CLS), Covenant Health, and Lamont Health Care Centre). APL also continues to work collaboratively with DynaLIFE, under contract to provide lab services in Alberta.
Why was APL created?
Consolidating laboratory services and staff from across the province ensures patients, providers and partners across Alberta are provided with consistent and efficient access to lab services, leading to better patient outcomes and an enhanced patient experience.
Ultimately, this will help improve the health of Albertans.
How do I access laboratory services?
For now, patients can continue to make appointments, find locations, look up tests, and access visitor guides as they did before from these websites:
