DotLab's laboratory receives accreditation from College of American Pathologists
BRANFORD, Conn., Jan. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — DotLab, a molecular diagnostics company at the forefront of research and development in women’s health, announced that the Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to DotLab based on results of a recent inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs.
The facility’s director, Vice President of Laboratory Operations Rebecca Sanderson, PhD, was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. “CAP accreditation is a reflection of laboratory excellence and sets DotLab apart in its pursuit of novel diagnostics for women’s health,” said Dr. Sanderson.
DotLab’s Senior Vice President of Medical Affairs Melissa Stosic, upon learning of the laboratory’s accreditation, said “CAP accreditation is a milestone indicative of DotLab’s outstanding laboratory practices and commitment to advancing the future of innovation in molecular diagnostics.”
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.
