Perlegen's California Lab Gains CLIA Certification

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Genetic testing company Perlegen Sciences has received certification for a new clinical lab in Mountain View, Calif., the company said today.

The company said it received Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments certification from the California Department of Public Health's Laboratory Field Services and has opened the facility.

Perlegen CEO Bryan Walser said in a statement that the opening of the lab is "a significant advance in our efforts to commercialize Perlegen's key genetic tests," which the company will begin with the launch this fall of the MammaPlus genetic test for breast cancer risk.
