NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The College of American Pathologists has provided accreditation for Decode Genetics' CLIA-registered DNA isolation and genotyping laboratory, the Icelandic firm said today.
Decode said that the lab processes its DecodeMe personal genome scans and risk-assessment diagnostic tests. The firm said that the CAP accreditation can be used to meet many state certification requirements.
Decode received the accreditation following a recent inspection, which included examination of lab records and quality control of procedures for the previous two years. CAP inspectors also review staff qualifications, equipment, and facilities; safety programs and records; and overall management.
