Westminster, CO, April 10, 2018 – The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to Flagship Biosciences, based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs.
“CAP accreditation validates Flagship’s commitment and dedication to ensuring the highest quality for our clients and patients,” says Roberto Gianani, MD, Flagship Medical Director. “CAP’s peer-based inspection model and rigorous standards are backed by the most respected worldwide pathology organization.”
Flagship’s CAP accreditation covers the following areas and laboratory services:
- All Common
- Anatomic Pathology Processing
- Digital Image Analysis
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.
The U.S. federal government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960’s, as being equal-to or more-stringent-than the government’s own inspection program.
