The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to One Health Laboratories LLC, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs.
The facility’s director, Tiffany K. Bratton, PhD, DABCC, D(ABHI), was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. One Health Laboratories LLC is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.
Max Perelman, One Health Laboratories Chief Executive Officer, upon learning of the laboratory’s accreditation, said: “One Health Laboratories is committed to delivering the highest quality information to clinicians and their patients. The CAP accreditation is a testament to the high standards of our laboratory and is an important milestone in our company’s mission to provide cutting edge, rapid turnaround and STAT testing services.”
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.
