Genex Diagnostics Earns Accreditation by the American Association of Blood Banks

March 5 2004 - Genex Diagnostics, Inc. today is pleased to announce that it has formally received accreditation under ISO Standard 17025. Genex Diagnostics becomes the first few DNA laboratories to be recognized as an ISO 17025 certified facility in North America.

Accreditation follows an intensive on-site assessment by specially trained AABB assessors and establishes that the level of medical, technical and administrative performance within the facility meets or exceeds the standards set by AABB. By successfully meeting those requirements, Genex Diagnostics joins the limited and distinguished set of Paternity Testing Laboratories in North America and abroad that have earned AABB Accreditation.

"The AABB's Accreditation procedures are voluntary," Elina Alimkulov, Quality Manager of Genex Diagnostics explained. "Genex Diagnostics has sought AABB Accreditation because this program assists facilities around the country in achieving excellence by promoting a level of professional and medical expertise that contributes to quality performance."

AABB Accreditation is the designation of choice for paternity testing laboratories because it demonstrates an organization's commitment to advanced learning, continuous improvement and innovation by striving to sustain the highest possible level of patient and client care. AABB-accredited organizations are recognized by their peers as leaders in their field and as pivotal voices in the dialogue through which consensus-based, voluntary standards are developed and implemented.
