DevLab Bio Awarded CAP Accreditation
Expanding CLIA-certified Contract Research and Clinical Diagnostics Laboratory Secures CAP Approval
COPPELL, Texas, January 6, 2022 (Newswire.com) - DevLab, LLC is proud to announce that the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to DevLab, LLC, dba DevLab bio, by the Accreditation Committee due to results of an on-site inspection performed by the CAP Accreditation Program. The DevLab bio clinical laboratory provides diagnostic testing and supports its Contract Research Services division.
"Quality is key to ensuring a laboratory's performance, accuracy of test results, and overall patient care," says Aaron LeFebvre, Ph.D., DevLab bio's VP of Research and Development and Laboratory Director. "Having now received our CAP accreditation, DevLab bio can assure physicians and patients that our laboratory meets some of the highest standards of quality worldwide. The entire team at DevLab puts quality and patient care first. They know there is a person attached to every test result, and we make it our business to take care of those we serve."
Recognized by the U.S. federal government as being equal to or more stringent than their own inspection program, the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program began in the early 1960s. 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.
