Licensure and Quality Controls

OPKO Health, BioReference Laboratories and GenPath Diagnostics strive to produce the most accurate and precise laboratory data for our professional clients. Our Bi-Costal U.S. presence and track record of proficiency tests are carried out under the auspice of the Departments of Health of California, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont State, West Virginia, CLIA, and the College of American Pathologists.

In addition, we routinely augment proficiency tests on a voluntary basis, with a comprehensive “In-House” program of quality control and assurance. Our internal program:

  • Utilizes blind split samples
  • Reviews all control data carried out the previous 24 hours on a daily basis
  • Monitors short and long term shifts and trends of control data
  • Statistically reviews patient means data for the most commonly used tests
  • Produces monthly computerized quality assurance reports that compare our results with all other laboratories using the same reagents and methodologies
  • Provides regular seminars to all scientific staff, updating them on newer procedures and clinical advances in the field

While our laboratory utilizes the most cutting-edge instrumentation, the continued accuracy of results depends upon the skills of our senior scientists, medical technologists and technicians. We pride ourselves on our medical staff that is comprised of more than 40 board-certified pathologists and laboratory scientists that continuously collaborate to bring you dedicated service and quality in a timely manner.
