2021 01 12 23 44 3780 Blood Test Samples Lab 400

The College of American Pathologists (CAP) recently accredited the Precision Medicine Laboratory at Louisiana State University (LSU) Health New Orleans School of Medicine.

The goal of the $2 million LSU lab is to bring next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies to the clinical arena. It is a collaboration between the university's departments of pathology and genetics.

The lab has also helped with sequencing positive coronavirus patient samples to determine what strains of SARS-CoV-2 are circulating in the New Orleans area.

CAP accreditation helps laboratories maintain the accuracy of test results, ensure accurate patient diagnosis, and meet various federal standards.
