Personalis' Lab Receives CAP Accreditation

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Personalis has received accreditation from the College of American Pathologists for its clinical lab in Menlo Park, Calif., the genetic analysis company said today.

Personalis provides DNA sequencing and interpretation of human exome and genome data to clinicians and researchers. The firm's Accuracy and Content Enhanced (ACE) Technology increases medically relevant coverage and accuracy of standard exomes or genomes. Meantime, its ACE Clinical Exome service provides gene finishing to help clinicians detect potentially pathogenic variants in specific genes, genome-wide structural variant detection, and non-exonic interpretable content to detect pathogenic variants located outside of the coding regions of genes.

The CAP Laboratory Accreditation program involves inspections of clinical lab records and quality control procedures and assessments of a lab's staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program, and overall management.
