Plexision Receives Laboratory Accreditation by the College of American Pathologists
PITTSBURGH–(BUSINESS WIRE)–October 18, 2021–
Plexision, a biotechnology company, which provides personalized diagnostic testing services for organ transplant patients and for infections that affect immunocompromised patients has received Accreditation by the College of American pathologists for its CLIA-certified reference laboratory in Pittsburgh, PA.
“CAP accreditation recognizes the high quality and standards met by our laboratory’s processes and procedures which are so essential to delivering high-end testing”, said Pradeep Sethi, MD, FACP, Medical Director of Plexision.
The U.S. federal government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, as being equal-to or more-stringent-than the government’s own inspection program. During the CAP accreditation process, designed to ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management.
“Plexision is committed to excellence in personalized care of transplant and immunocompromised patients. CAP accreditation validates this commitment and is an important and well-deserved milestone for our team”, said Rajeev Sindhi, CEO of Plexision.
