The mission of Laboratory Field Services branch (LFS) is to ensure quality standards in clinical and public health laboratories and laboratory scientists through licensing, examination, inspection, education, and proficiency testing.

LFS is the primary link between the health of California citizens and quality oriented, accurate and reliable clinical laboratory testing.
