CoreMedica Chief Laboratory Officer, Cristian Saez, PhD, DLM(ASCP), was advised of CAP’s reaffirmation for the national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the service being provided. CoreMedica Laboratories is one of more than 7,000 CAP-accredited laboratories worldwide.
"Achieving our second CAP accreditation validates our vision for blood spot collection," says Cory Zuehlsdorf, President and CEO. "CAP accreditation, together with our CLIA certification, substantiates our commitment to excellence and confidence to our customers that results received are of the highest quality possible."
During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control procedures. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, as well as the laboratory’s equipment, facilities, safety program and record, in addition to the overall management of the laboratory. This stringent inspection program is designed specifically to ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients.
