CLIA Certificate of Accreditation_Jan 25, 2024

Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)


Psomagen acquired CLIA certification in 2013.

What exactly is CLIA certification? The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regulates all clinical laboratory testing performed on humans in the United States through CLIA. 



Achieving CLIA Certification

CLIA certification requires two proficiency tests (PT) every year. Full validation is required for all instruments for clinical testing, and validation is reviewed every two years by CMS surveyors. All workflow, standard operating procedures, and personnel (including personnel credentials) are tightly regulated and approved by the CMS.



CAP Certificate 8 2025

The College of American Pathologists (CAP)


Psomagen acquired CAP certification in 2017.


The CAP is a leader in laboratory quality assurance and promotes excellence in healthcare. The purpose of CAP laboratory accreditation is to ensure laboratories provide precise test results for accurate patient diagnoses, meet CLIA requirements, and demonstrate compliance with professionally and scientifically sound and approved laboratory operating standards.

Requirements for CAP Accreditation


Achieving CAP accreditation is a two-year process that encompasses inspection by a CAP-assigned inspection team that determines compliance to specific laboratory standards and identifies any deficiencies for correction prior to accreditation.


CAP-accredited laboratories must have a quality management program that validates the quality and safety of laboratory medical services. External quality assurance (also called proficiency testing) establishes laboratory quality and is monitored on a continual basis.


Laboratories performing next-generation sequencing have validated sample preparation, library creation, and amplification protocols. Policies exist for the reporting of sequence variants and the re-validation of instruments and other upgrades.


Quality assurance of bioinformatics systems must be documented, and accredited laboratories must meet requirements for the methods of storing and confidentiality of data.

About CAP


The CAP is composed of pathologists certified by the Board of American Pathologists. It was provided decision-making authority by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which, in addition to being recognized by the Joint Commission, permits CAP inspection on the behalf of CMS. They foster and advocate excellence in the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine worldwide.
