Safeguard Digital

Our Digital Collection Service

In July 2016 SYNLAB Laboratory Services launched Safeguard Digital, a tablet-based platform for digital drug and alcohol collections used by our national Collection Service. Safeguard Digital was developed as part of our innovation pipeline, and highlights SYNLAB Laboratory Services’ commitment to continually invest in new technologies to improve communication and efficiency throughout our business. We are on of the only drug and alcohol testing suppliers to offer Safeguard Digital as part of our sample collection process.

Benefits of Safeguard Digital:

  • Records the same data as our current paper Collection/Chain of Custody forms.
  • It’s environmentally friendly! Reduces 250,000 pieces of paper from our collection process each year.
  • Improved repeatability and consistency of the collection procedure.
  • Creates one streamlined collection process.
Did You Know… 

SYNLAB Laboratory Services’ national Collection Service has ISO 17025 accreditation from UKAS for the chain of custody part of our urine and saliva drug and alcohol collections.

The adoption of Safeguard Digital has been supported by our accrediting body UKAS, as it further supports our already robust collection process.
