Centre for Clinical Genomics successful in CAP accreditation renewal
The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to The Centre of Clinical Genomics (CCG) based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs. The inspection included examination of the laboratory’s records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examined laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management. The CCG is based within the GSC and was first accredited in 2011. It is one of more than 7,600 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.
