About CAP Accreditation

In 2012, the CAP Biorepository Accreditation Program was launched to provide a standardized path towards generating the highest quality biological and genetic specimens that can be used to bolster and drive scientific research. Drawing upon recognized best practice guidelines established by the ISBER, NCI, OECD, CMS and more, the program has continued to expand and was further enhanced when CAP Physicians took part in making the ISO 20387 Standard for biobanking. With this dedication to excellence, scientists pursuing groundbreaking research can have confidence in the fruits of their labor, knowing that their specimens meet the highest standards of quality.
