With the domain acquisition, patients will be able to take advantage of improved access, better service, increased convenience, personalized care plans based on their individual health needs, and therapeutic approaches tailored to their lifestyle and utilizing nootropic supplements and smart drugs.

We look forward to continuing our long tradition of excellence by offering patients the best in integrated laboratory services from WholisticResearch’s laboratories throughout North America and worldwide, including South Korea.

CLIA-certified laboratory services

The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) are a set of federal regulations in the United States that detail the clinical laboratories’ requirements, analyzing human bodily fluids and tissues. The amendments aim to ensure patient safety by establishing standards for laboratory facilities.

If you have clinical research needs, the CLIA-certified laboratory services can help. You’ll receive the highest-quality testing results with lab experts who understand your specific requirements and keep up-to-date on new developments in the field.

CLIA-certified laboratory services for clinical research, toxicology, and environmental testing have been expanded to include – but are not limited to:

  • Microbiology Testing Services, including microbiological analysis of water, food, and surfaces.
  • Toxicology Laboratory Services include drug screen (urine), alcohol test, pregnancy tests, blood thinners.
  • Reference Lab Testing Services, including HLA typing/genotyping services with over 30% savings on fees compared to other reference labs in Canada.

Quality Assurance Programs

The acquisition will help us provide a higher level of quality control by implementing QA/QC programs that are industry-leading while allowing for more capacity and increased efficiency.

To ensure the highest customer satisfaction levels with our laboratory services, we have embraced new technologies and implemented rigorous Quality Assurance Programs as part of Clinical Laboratory International’s commitment to high standards in healthcare diagnostics.

CLIA certified laboratories also provide a higher level of quality assurance by being accredited according to ISO 15189 Standards, the world’s most stringent guidelines for accrediting medical laboratories.

The purchase of CRInternational will help us provide a higher quality testing platform by implementing stricter QC programs that are compliant with international guidelines, enabling CLIA Laboratories clients to access more timely results for their diagnostic needs.


With all our laboratories’ combined expertise, we offer a variety of services to meet your needs. We have expanded from microbiology testing and can provide toxicology laboratory services such as drug screens (urine) or alcohol tests, pregnancy tests, or blood thinners.

We are delighted with this opportunity to expand further and enhance the laboratory services and nootropics research. We have embraced new technologies and implemented rigorous Quality Assurance Programs as part of Clinical Laboratory International’s commitment to high healthcare diagnostics standards.

This strategic move will allow us to continue providing excellent service for our clients while expanding our capabilities worldwide.

As clinicians, Drs. John Hittner Jr., Meei-Ling Chang, Robert Davis III, and Howard Burdick founded CLIA Labs because they recognized an unmet need in the medical community for greater clinical diagnosis accuracy, offering statistical support services to provide a higher quality testing platform.

The domain of Clinical Laboratory International is now part of WholisticResearch which means greater opportunities to provide patients with more personalized care plans that meet their individual needs.
