Cleveland Diagnostics Receives College of American Pathologists (CAP) Accreditation for Its Clinical Laboratory
-- Clinical Laboratory Meets the Highest Standards in Laboratory Practice --
CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cleveland Diagnostics, Inc., a commercial-stage biotechnology company developing next-generation diagnostic tests for the early detection of cancers, announced today that it has received Laboratory Accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP) for its CLIA certified reference lab. The CAP Accreditation is awarded to laboratories that meet stringent requirements and maintain the highest standards of laboratory quality, accuracy, and consistency.
“Cleveland Diagnostics is committed to delivering the highest quality, clinically-actionable information to clinicians and their patients,” said Arnon Chait, Ph.D., CEO of Cleveland Diagnostics. “The CAP accreditation is a testament to the standards that we uphold in our laboratory as well as in our business. This is an important milestone in our company’s mission to develop technologies to detect cancer early, when it can be treated most effectively.”
Recognized by the U.S. federal government as being equal to or more stringent than the government’s own inspection program, the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program is widely recognized as the gold standard in clinical laboratory accreditation. The CAP accreditation process is designed to ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients and includes an intense site inspection with rigorous examination of the laboratory’s records and quality control procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management.
“We are extremely proud to receive this accreditation,” said Aimee Kestranek, COO of Cleveland Diagnostics. “This provides further evidence to physicians, patients, and partners that we are committed to maintaining the highest standards in laboratory quality and accuracy.”
