Gundersen BioBank is CAP accredited
The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to Gundersen BioBank based on results of an on-site inspection. They join an elite group of internationally recognized facilities that meet the highest standards of excellence in quality biorepository practices.
The CAP Biorepository Accreditation process, a three-year accreditation cycle, includes inspection of quality-control practices, laboratory procedures, equipment and facilities, quality management plan, and select quality and process statistics.
Accreditation reaffirms Gundersen BioBank's commitment to providing the highest quality tissue repository and provides assurance to donors about the validity of its research efforts.
The CAP, first in the industry to offer an accreditation program for biorepositories, was developed to improve and standardize quality and consistency in collecting, processing, storing, distributing and computerizing information for biospecimens while ensuring the quality of human specimens and genetic material.
