HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, September 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to APC Health LLC Laboratory, Pearland, Texas based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs.
The facility’s director, Yan Zou, PhD, was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. APC Health LLC Laboratory is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.
APC Health’s Chief Executive Officer, Rohan Nath, upon learning of the laboratory’s accreditation, said: “We are delighted to join the select group of laboratories that have received CAP Accreditation. It demonstrates our commitment to excellence in all aspects of our operations.”
The U.S. federal government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, as being equal-to or more-stringent-than the government’s own inspection program.
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.
