Exagen Diagnostics Receives Lab Accreditation From College of American Pathologists
Date:7/8/2010

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Exagen Diagnostics, Inc., a molecular diagnostics laboratory that discovers, develops and markets proprietary genomic tests, has been awarded accreditation by the Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP).

The CAP is a leading organization of board-certified pathologists that serves patients, pathologists and the public by fostering and advocating excellence in the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine. The CAP accreditation program, begun in the early 1960s, is recognized by the federal government as being equal to or more stringent than the government's own inspection program. Exagen is one of more than 17,000 CAP-accredited laboratories in the world.

"We are extremely pleased to receive recognition for the high quality diagnostic services our laboratory provides," said Exagen Clinical Laboratory Director John Hozier Ph.D., FACMG. "As we continue to develop new genomic tests independently and through partnerships with pharmaceutical and diagnostics companies, having CAP accreditation validates our position as one of the world's most forward looking laboratories."

The CAP awards accreditation based on the results of onsite inspections. During the process, inspectors examine the laboratory's records and quality control procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, laboratory equipment, facilities, the laboratory's safety program and record, in addition to overall management of the laboratory. This stringent inspection program is specifically designed to ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients.
