The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) recently awarded accreditation to the Reproductive Institute of South Texas’ fertility laboratory. The highly skilled, meticulous team and state-of-the-art facility contribute to nationally renowned IVF success rates reported each year by Dr. Esteban O. Brown, fertility specialist and laboratory director.

“We’re honored but not surprised to earn this national recognition,” says Dr. Brown. “For more than 19 years now, the entire laboratory staff, led by embryologists Yinzhong Bing, Ph.D, and Li Mei Che, has committed itself every day to excellence, in patient care delivered, services provided and results reported.”

Reproductive Institute of South Texas is one of more than 7,000 CAP-accredited laboratories worldwide. The 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. 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, 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 to specifically ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients,” says Ronald B. Lepoff, MD, who chairs the CAP accreditation committee. “As a result of Reproductive Institute of South Texas’ commitment to quality and patient safety, the medical team has achieved the ‘gold standard’ of laboratory accreditation.”
Conveniently located within the Reproductive Institute of South Texas fertility center, the laboratory serves patients and hopeful parents-to-be with the latest advanced reproductive technologies and procedures, including in-vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), assisted hatching, parental genetic testing and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD).
