How We Can Help

Our team helps clients navigate the complex federal and state regulatory landscape when starting a new lab or growing the test menu of their existing laboratory.

Our comprehensive approach includes recruiting a qualified Laboratory Director, determining the test menu, enrolling with deemed agencies, ownership disclosures, validation plans, and filing the CMS 116 application.

We consult and offer strategic guidance along the way to ensure our clients are able to quickly and compliantly start testing with CLIA, COLA, and CAP accreditation.

We successfully filed over 230 CLIA applications in the last two years (2020-2021) with most of our clients receiving their CLIA Certificate of Registration in less than a month.
