Menlo Park, CA – April 24, 2018 – Personalis, Inc., a provider of advanced genomic sequencing and analytics for immuno-oncology, today announced the Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded re-accreditation to the Personalis Clinical Laboratory, Menlo Park, California based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs.
The Personalis Clinical Laboratory, Personalis Inc., was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. The Personalis Clinical Laboratory is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.
“In addition to receiving CAP re-accreditation, we are very pleased there were no deficiencies noted during this re-inspection, in line with a Personalis Clinical Laboratory trend since first receiving CAP Accreditation in 2014,” said Massimo Morra, MD PhD FACMG, Senior Clinical Laboratory Director at Personalis. Dr. Morra also added, “This accomplishment is a testament to the outstanding service provided by the entire Personalis Team and their commitment to the Clinical Laboratory operation.”
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.
