Acacia Research (Newport Beach, California) said its CombiMatrix group's wholly-owned subsidiary, CombiMatrix Molecular Diagnostics (CMDX), has been awarded an accreditation by the Commission on Laboratory Accreditation of the College of American Pathologists (CAP; Northfield, Illinois), based on the results of a recent inspection of its laboratory in Irvine, California.

CMDX's laboratory director was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the "excellence of the services being provided." The news comes on the heels of CMDX's recent report that it had received laboratory certification through the federal government's CLIA program.
