The Centre for Clinical Genomic Diagnostics (CDG) gains CAP accreditation
The Centre for Clinical Genomic Diagnostics (CDG) has launched as a strategic partnership between the Genome Sciences Centre of the BC Cancer Agency and the Provincial Health Services Authority.
An inter-disciplinary team has been formed to focus on bringing emerging genomic technologies to clinical diagnostic applications. This team includes representation from medical, technical, quality, health economics and social ethics fields – an ideal mix of expertise needed to tackle the explosive field of personalized medicine. Strong informatics is critical to this new diagnostics era and the CDG is able to leverage some of the best informatics resources in Canada. Through a graduated implementation of genomic assays addressing various conditions, the CDG aims to provide extensive clinical diagnostic genomic services for the Province of British Columbia and beyond.
The CDG is accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP).
