Inivata Receives Accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP)
CAP Accreditation is Awarded to Clinical Laboratories Meeting the Highest Standards in Laboratory Practices.
Inivata, a leader in liquid biopsy, today announces that it has received Accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP) for its CLIA laboratory in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. The CAP Accreditation is awarded to laboratories which meet stringent quality, accuracy and consistency requirements.
The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program began in the early 1960s and is widely recognized as being equal-to or more-stringent-than the US federal government’s inspection program instituted under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 statute (CLIA). The Accreditation of the Inivata laboratory followed a recent site inspection, during which the laboratory records and quality control procedures for the previous two years were thoroughly examined.
Dr Jamie Platt, Chief Operations Officer at Inivata, said: “At Inivata we are committed to delivering the highest quality information for clinicians and patients. Upholding stringent laboratory standards and a focused effort on continuous quality improvement are critical elements of our commitment. The CAP Accreditation demonstrates that our laboratory operates at the highest level, and supports us in delivering our mission to transform the lives of cancer patients through the power of liquid biopsy.”
