SomaLogic announced today that its United States clinical laboratory (CLIA laboratory) has been re-accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP). The successful renewal of CAP accreditation is based on the results of a recent on-site inspection designed to ensure the highest laboratory standards.
During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management. The U.S. federal government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, as being equal-to or more-stringent-than the government’s own inspection program.
“We are proud of our CLIA lab team for passing the CAP inspection with flying colors,” said Roy Smythe, SomaLogic’s Chief Executive Officer. “Earning CAP re-accreditation shows our commitment to providing accurate, reproducible test results that meet the most rigorous quality standards. This commitment is critical as we prepare to launch the first clinical tests based on our unique proteomic technology later this year.”
