GenWay Clinical Laboratory receives accreditation from College of American Pathologists

December 15, 2009

GenWay Biotech, Inc. GenWay Clinical Laboratory, San Diego, California, has been awarded an accreditation by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), based on results of a recent onsite inspection.

The laboratory's director was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the "excellence of the services being provided." GenWay Biotech Inc. GenWay Clinical Laboratory is one of nearly 7,000 CAP-accredited laboratories nationwide.

The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, is recognized by the federal government as being equal to or more stringent than the government's own inspection program.

During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examine the laboratory's records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine the entire staff's qualifications, the laboratories equipment, facilities, safety program and record, as well as to the overall management of the laboratory. This stringent inspection program is designed to specifically ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients.
