ACP Medical Laboratory Evaluation program gains approval from CAP accreditation program
Date:7/19/2010

Washington, July 19, 2010The American College of Physicians' Medical Laboratory Evaluation (MLE) program recently gained approval to offer certain analytes for use with the College of American Pathologists (CAP) Laboratory Accreditation Program (LAP). The CAP accreditation program is an internationally-recognized program that uses more rigorous standards than regulatory compliance to help labs achieve the highest standard of excellence. In order to qualify for accreditation, labs must perform proficiency testing on required analytes.

"MLE is very proud to have had our program reviewed by CAP and to have almost 100 of our offered analytes accepted by their LAP program," said MLE Director Connie Laubenthal. "Using the LAP, or similar program, ensures your lab has a good quality assurance program. Similarly, MLE has always had the highest of standards in providing quality materials to our participants and we pride ourselves on our standard of excellence in processing and analyzing the data received from our participant laboratories."

The full listing of tests accepted by CAP's LAP program is located at http://www.acponline.org/mle/cap.pdf

MLE's mission is to administer a service-oriented proficiency testing program that provides technical and educational tools necessary to assess, monitor, and improve the quality of laboratory testing. After 37 years, MLE's goals remain to provide courteous and flexible customer service, to educate through the dissemination of technical information, and to promote compliance with regulatory and accreditation requirements.
