Quest Diagnostics is driven to discover and deliver diagnostic insights and innovations that help to improve human health. We offer a wide range of products and services that benefit patients, healthcare providers, and pharmaceutical medical device companies, life insurance companies and employers.
We are the world’s leading provider of diagnostic testing, information and services that patients and doctors need to make better healthcare decisions. Our services range from routine blood tests — such as total cholesterol, Pap testing and white blood cell count — to complex, gene-based and molecular testing. We perform medical tests that aid in the diagnosis or detection of diseases, measure the progress or recovery from a disease or confirm that an individual is free from disease. We have specialized expertise in cancer, cardiovascular diseases, infectious diseases, and neurology.
We develop and manufacture devices, test kits and reagents used by physicians, hospitals, blood collection centers and other clinical laboratories to help detect, characterize, monitor and select treatment for disease. Our award-winning Simplexa® products enable molecular testing for a variety of infectious diseases.
We’re one of the largest providers of global central laboratory services performed in connection with clinical research trials. By providing clinical laboratory services to pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device manufacturing companies, we help those clients speed the development of new drugs, biologics, and medical devices that improve patient care.
Over 200,000 physicians use our Care360® suite of connectivity solutions to order lab tests, receive timely test results, share clinical information quickly and securely, and prescribe drugs. Currently used to process over one million transactions every day and capable of electronic interconnectivity, Care360 is a vital part of the national healthcare information infrastructure. In December 2010, Care360 Electronic Health Record (EHR), Version 2010.2 was certified as a Complete EHR by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT). Care360 EHR is one of the first EHRs to utilize the Direct Project exchange protocol, which enables physicians to communicate easily with other physicians using a secure email format. It also allows care team stakeholders to collaborate more efficiently, and patients to receive information about their care.

Derived from the world's largest database of clinical lab results, our diagnostic insights reveal new avenues to identify and treat disease, inspire healthy behaviors and improve health care management.

As the world's leading provider of diagnostic testing, information and services, Quest Diagnostics is leading the charge to raise the quality of healthcare delivery in the United States. Quality is not just our commitment it is our passion.
Six Sigma is a rigorous, data-centered approach to process improvement with the goal of delivering "virtual perfection" — meaning consistently high quality. Motorola first introduced Six Sigma in 1979 and companies such as General Electric and Allied Signal use it to dramatically reduce errors by trying to prevent them from happening in the first place. Quest Diagnostics began its Six Sigma journey in 2000 and is committed to being a Six Sigma Company in the eyes of its employees, customers and shareholders.
Quest Diagnostics has a heritage of focusing on quality. We are proud that Quest Diagnostics Nichols Institute was the first laboratory in North America to achieve ISO 9001 Certification in 1998.
Through our relentless focus on quality, we strive to provide our customers the highest quality products and services available; continuous improvement; and an unyielding desire to meet their requirements first time every time.
