During the week of Monday, May 13th, 2019, Aculabs was happy to welcome representatives from The College of American Pathologists into our doors for the organization’s routine yearly inspection.

As a clinical laboratory operating across the Mid-Atlantic, Aculabs finds maintaining quality testing that’s in-line with all industry-wide accreditation standards extremely important and works to ensure that we continually deliver excellence through participation in all relevant proficiency testing programs.

The College of American Pathologists  Рor simply CAP Рdescribes its accreditation curriculum as follows on its website:

The College of American Pathologists (CAP’s) Laboratory Accreditation Program accredits the entire spectrum of laboratory test disciplines with the most scientifically rigorous customized checklist requirements. The CAP’s peer-based inspector model provides a unique balance of regulatory and educational coaching supported by the most respected worldwide pathology organization. The Laboratory Accreditation Program inspects a variety of laboratory settings from complex university medical centers to physician office laboratories, and covers a complete array of disciplines and testing procedures.

The inspection took place over the course of two days and any deficiency issues that were cited during the inspection were corrected on-site. At the completion of the inspection, Aculabs was found to be a deficiency-free laboratory.

Aculabs is glad to be able to share this news with all of our client facilities and would like to thank our technical staff for their continued excellence.
