OneLab Network, a platform developed by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) had recently been awarded the Benita & Catalino Yap Foundation (BCYF) Innovation Award under the government category.

The BCYF recognizes innovative products, services, technologies, or initiatives that transform organizations through improvements that are sustainable, demonstrable and measurable.

Having proved itself to be so is the platform's innovation in service delivery where it saw the integration of DOST’s regional and research institutes’ laboratories as well as other non-DOST laboratories all over the country into a network to provide easy-access to the testing and calibration services for the manufacturing industries and the public in general.

Not sure if your local laboratory can handle your test sample? Worry no more! Developed by the Department of Science and Technology IX (DOST-IX), the OneLab Platform allows customers to submit their samples to the nearest DOST laboratory to have them tested - even if that lab currently does not have the means to process the said sample.

This is possible through the OneLab Referral System, which basically takes you through a quick, 5-step process:

• Submit your sample to the nearest DOST lab
• The system is checked for a lab that can best process your request if the receiving lab cannot
• Your sample is sent to the appropriate lab
• The testing lab conducts that necessary tests or calibrations, then uploads the results to the receiving lab
• Claim your results personally or via email, regular mail or fax
