Biovica receives CAP Accreditation for its CLIA Laboratory
Biovica today announces that it has received Laboratory Accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP) for its Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)-certified laboratory in San Diego, California. CAP accreditation is awarded to laboratories that meet stringent requirements and maintain the highest standards for laboratory operations of quality, accuracy, and consistency, as outlined by CAP.
CAP accreditation offers several commercial advantages. It facilitates the process of obtaining reimbursement from private insurance providers and enables DiviTum® TKa expansion into New York, Maryland, and Washington D.C. Post license application and approval, Biovica will be able to offer DiviTum also in these locations and thereby be able to cover the entire US. In addition, CAP accreditation is a highly coveted credential, particularly among pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. They seek it out when they require a more rigorous regulatory framework for their projects, especially when the data generated is intended for submission to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
"I take great pride in the efforts put forth by our team to reach this significant milestone. Attaining CAP accreditation underscores our unwavering commitment to quality.", says Warren Cresswell, President of the Americas at Biovica.
