AcelaBio Accredited by College of American Pathologists

San Diego, CA, USA, Release: September 15, 2022 – AcelaBio (US) Inc., a contract research organization delivering histopathology and precision medicine laboratory services for global clinical trials, achieved its accreditation by the College of American Pathologists (CAP). CAP accreditation indicates that the laboratory meets stringent requirements of quality, accuracy, and consistency of test results to ensure optimal assessment of patient diagnoses and outcomes. It also ensures that the laboratory complies with the standards of the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) since CAP requirements commonly exceed those standards. The assessment by CAP is performed according to discipline-specific checklists that include the latest best practices to ensure the laboratory follows rapidly evolving changes in laboratory medicine and technology.

As a CAP-accredited laboratory, AcelaBio has rigorous policies and procedures for the optimization and validation of assays to ensure high-quality laboratory testing and patient safety. A documented audit trail is generated for every specimen arriving at AcelaBio and tracked throughout the workflow into a laboratory information system. 

“Our mission is to enhance the understanding of disease mechanisms and support the development of safe and effective treatments for patients. Obtaining accreditation by CAP is internationally recognized as a symbol of quality. This accreditation solidifies the value we bring to our partners and clients in supporting global multicenter clinical trials with histopathology and precision medicine laboratory services,” said Dr. Niels Vande Casteele, Associate Professor of Medicine, University of California San Diego, and President of AcelaBio.
