Cynvenio Biosystems Gets CAP Lab Accreditation

Los Angeles-based Cyvenio Biosystems>, which provides lab testing services for characterizing cancer cells, reported today that it has received accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP). The new accreditation comes on top of existing, certification that the company has held from the CLIA since 2013. Cynvenio said the new CAP Laboratory Accreditation is designed to ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients, and came after inspectors examined the laboratory's records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years, and also checked laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management. Cynvenio's testing technology is used to characterize breast, prostate and colorectal cancer cells from blood draws, which helps doctors guide their treatment of those cancers. Cynvenio is led by Andre de Fusco.
