The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) established quality standards for laboratory testing to ensure the accuracy, reliability, and timeliness of patient test results. CLIA requires that any facility examining human specimens for diagnosis, prevention, treatment of a disease or for assessment of health must register with the Federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and obtain CLIA certification.

Some states have additional regulations that apply to laboratory testing, with most of these state regulations exceeding the CLIA requirements. Many laboratories also require accreditation by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) or The Joint Commission, in addition to the federally mandated CLIA certification.

Whether you’re a biomedical or pharmaceutical firm seeking CLIA laboratory certification as part of your company’s commercialization strategy, or a diagnostic firm seeking CAP or JC accreditation as required to upgrade or expand service coverage, consider this package from a subject matter expert with over twenty years in the business.
