The Clear Lake Campus laboratory has earned its College of American Pathologists accreditation following a recent, initial inspection in which 860 regulatory standards were met and zero deficiencies were found—a rare accomplishment, especially for
new labs. This recent success speaks to the lab team’s day-to-day attention to detail and commitment to ensuring all UTMB patients receive the best quality of care. Managed by members of UTMB’s Laboratory Services Department, the lab consists
of one manager, one technical supervisor, three senior medical laboratory scientists and 10 medical laboratory scientists, along with lab assistants who work the bench to process approximately 600 tests every day. With laboratories across all four
UTMB campuses, consistency is key, so Laboratory Services personnel and leadership have worked hard to standardize processes for instrumentation, testing, document control, competency assessments and more.
