CLIA Inspection: A highly anticipated day

As many of you know, we received our CLIA designation back in March of this year for our first CLIA test, the Clinical Exome Test. While this is not a catchy name with a clever acronym, it does a pretty good job of conveying exactly what the test is, I believe. What you may not know is that you do not get inspected by State regulators before you receive your CLIA and State certificates, you get audited afterwards. So, while highly confident in our data submission package for CLIA application, until you get audited, there is still a bit of doubt as to whether you are truly good enough. Similar to asking someone to marry you, when proposing, generally you are pretty confident in the response. But there is always that little bit of doubt…

A few weeks ago we received our CLIA certification for next generation sequencing and will offer clinical exome sequencing for large labs and hospitals that can do their own in-house analysis. We will supply aligned sequencing data and leave the interpretation to the customers themselves.

Recieving CLIA Status

EdgeBio CLIA labIt was with great anticipation and excitement that we received our Certificate of Compliance yesterday from the US Dept. of Health and Human Services Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. This, paired with our compliance letter from the State of Maryland, means we have been deemed a CLIA lab and can begin to offer our Clinical Exome test under CLIA guidelines. It’s been quite a journey to get here and everyone is quite excited to receive this designation and achieve this milestone.

AGBT Update #1 - Clinical Sequencing Focus

Here's an update from the conference. As always, AGBT lives up to its reputation. Wednesday evening's festivities were spot on with a personal highlight of being on board the Ion Torrent bus. Designed to be a rolling lab, it is a unique way to highlight the PGM, from form factor to actually doing a run on an instrument on the bus while the bus was parked on the beach...
