Metabolon Receives Accreditation by College of American Pathologists
The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program is the premier globally-recognized program for laboratory accreditation and the only one of its kind that utilizes practicing laboratory professionals as inspectors. Designed to exceed government regulatory compliance standards, the program assists laboratories to achieve the highest levels of excellence to positively impact patient care. CAP accreditation is based on rigorous standards translated into specific clinically recognized laboratory procedures and methods.
Metabolon’s CEO John Ryals said, “This accreditation means that Metabolon has met exceptionally rigorous standards in order to achieve the highest caliber of diagnostic testing quality. Our CAP accredited lab facility will offer tests developed using Metabolon’s proprietary biochemical profiling technology. The first of these new tests will be Quantose IR for the evaluation of insulin resistance.” Insulin resistance is a primary risk factor for the development of Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
