The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) awarded accreditation to the biorepository of the National Disease Research Interchange (NDRI) in Philadelphia, PA, based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs. NDRI is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited biorepository facilities worldwide.
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. NDRI was first accredited by CAP in 2016. Accreditations occur every three years.
