New Waived Tests

October 2nd, 2012

The Food and Drug Administration has added to its list of tests that may be performed under a CLIA Waiver.  For the full list visit:  http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cdrh/cfdocs/cfclia/analyteswaived.cfm.

The complete list may also be found on the CMS website at:  http://www.cms.gov/Regulations-and-Guidance/Guidance/Transmittals/Downloads/R2553CP.pdf

Even if a physician's office performs only waived tests, it is still necessary to have a CLIA number; and to follow good laboratory practices.

The Centers for Disease Control has publushed a booklet on Good Laboratory Practices for Waived Testing Sites.  It may be downloaded at: http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/rr5413a1.htm
