CellMax Life receives CLIA Certification in the U.S. and CAP Accreditation in Taiwan for its cancer testing laboratories
SUNNYVALE, CA AND TAIPEI CITY, TAIWAN (PRWEB) OCTOBER 18, 2016 – CellMax Life announced today the company has received certification under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). The company also announced it has received notice of accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP) for its Taipei laboratory.
CLIA regulations include federal standards applicable to all U.S. facilities or sites that test human specimens for health assessment or to diagnose, prevent, or treat disease. To gain the CLIA certification, CellMax had to meet quality standards for proficiency testing, management of patient testing, personnel qualifications, quality control, and quality assurance.
CAP accreditation is an internationally recognized standard of operational excellence. It is recognized by the United States government as being equally or more stringent than the federal inspection program, and is specifically designed to ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory samples.
“We are committed to reducing cancer mortality by making affordable, non-invasive early cancer detection easily accessible globally to everyone,” said Atul Sharan, President and CEO of CellMax Life. “These clinical laboratories certifications, along with our breakthrough proprietary CTC CMx platform, pave the way for our next growth phase in the United States, and give us a unique springboard into China and India.”
