It was approved by the Municipal Health and Family Planning Commission in December 2014 for the application of clinical gene amplification technology. Since March 7th, 2016, the Med Lab has been operating according to the international authoritative clinical laboratory quality certification system-the CAP -and passed the professional on-site inspection by CAP experts on February 10th, 2017, making it the first CAP-accredited NGS clinical lab in mainland China. After two years of effective operation and continuous improvement of its quality system, the Tianjin Novogene Med Lab – NGS Clinical Lab has once again passed the on-site inspection and successfully maintained its CAP accreditation.

“With the renewal of our CAP accreditation, Novogene continues to be globally recognized as a high-quality clinical service provider,” said Dr. Jeff Cheng, Chief Scientific Officer and Global Head of BioPharmaceutical Services at Novogene. “We strive to offer our clients best-in-class genomic solutions to advance research in human health.”

Novogene’s continuing accreditation signals that the lab has achieved universally accepted benchmarks for the standardization and accuracy of its quality management system, experimental technique level, bioinformatics analyses and clinical interpretation ability. This achievement is an important milestone in further establishing Novogene as a leading global provider of genomic services and solutions.
