Pangea Laboratory is a CLIA/CAP Accredited Facility
Per guidelines from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) registration is necessary to certify the validity of NGS-based tests, measured by their accuracy, precision, analytical sensitivity, and specificity, as well as the reportable reference range or interval. Beyond this, the College of American Pathologists (CAP) also has specific guidelines to ensure compliance with high levels of standards, for both the wet lab and bioinformatics pipelines.
CLIA and CAP requirements for NGS are updated annually to keep up with the constantly improving NGS landscape, and Pangea Laboratory has maintained our high levels of quality assurance standards and stayed fully accredited since we first received our certification in 2017. We have fully validated workflows and standard operating procedures, even as we continually upgrade our instruments. You can also rest assured that we have stringent data storage processes to ensure data confidentiality.
