It takes a specialized knowledge and years of experience to develop and maintain micro sample analysis. Unlike other labs, our medical scientists have over twenty-years combined experience in small volume collection techniques and specimen analysis.

We drive the instrumentation and specimens to their limits of acceptability for each and every analyte. Our process includes the identification of the sources of potential errors and quantification of the potential errors to ensure accuracy, precision, analytical sensitivity and specificity, interferences, and the reportable range for each analyte. All documentation is evaluated by The College of American Pathologist (CAP).
To maintain federal certification, state licenses (permits), and CAP accreditation, we demonstrate our laboratory proficiency through external and internal quality assessment. We voluntarily participate in several external proficiency testing programs from the College of American Pathologist and the State of New York.
CoreMedica is recognized by CAP yearly as: “a laboratory demonstrating continuous improvement in quality through participation in Surveys, and pathology education programs” since 2011.
We follow a rigorous validation process to assure each analyte is capable of meeting all precision and reproducibility prior to inclusion on our test menu. Our approach includes the use of outside research laboratories for specimen collection to incorporate the variability of collected samples into our correlation and stability studies.
