The College of American Pathologists (CAP - College of American Pathologists), one of the largest organizations of diagnostic medicine in the world, held since 1960, the most important quality certifi...cation worldwide laboratories. The list of accredited institutions is composed of 22,000 laboratories from 108 countries. In Brazil, only 10 laboratories have the CAP seal between about 22,500 national laboratories (IBGE / 2010). Two of these have been certified in the last two years, Richet and Genoa. See More
