Gentris Integrated Biorepository Receives Accreditation From The College of American Pathologists

MORRISVILLE, N.C., March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gentris® Corporation (, a global leader in pharmacogenomics and biorepository solutions, announced today that its Integrated Biorepository has been accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP). The CAP Biorepository Accreditation Program is the first of its kind. It is a three-year, peer-based accreditation program developed to drive the adoption of standards through consistent application of best practices and evidence-based standards.

As a participant in the new Biorepository Accreditation Program, Gentris was subject to an inspection based on the CAP Accreditation checklists, an up-to-date blueprint of best practices enabling facilities to improve operations and ensure quality. Gentris is proud to participate in this new program and remains committed to maintaining the highest regulatory and quality standards.

"Every clinical biospecimen represents a patient," said Stacey O'Neill, Medical Director. "Our scientific team at Gentris is committed to preserving the integrity of these precious resources that are critical for developing new innovations in translational medicine."

CAP established this accreditation program in 2011 to help ensure consistent, industry-wide verification of biospecimen quality. The program is designed to ensure the highest standard of patient care. Currently, thousands of biorepositories exist of varying sizes, specimen types, purpose, quality standards, procedures, and age. Excellence and quality measures in biorepositories directly affect sample integrity and therefore research outcomes that can help advance health care. CAP accreditation will help these disparate facilities standardize and harmonize their standard operating procedures and improve the quality of stored samples.

"Gentris has maintained a reputation for high quality pharmacogenomics and biorepository services for over 10 years," said Rick Williams , Gentris CEO. "We are excited about participating in the launch of the Biorepository Accreditation Program as we continue building partnerships with pharma sponsors to implement the new biobanking guidelines established by the FDA."
