  • OpenSpecimen/UC Davis: Webinar on CAP Accreditation of Biorepositories



    Achieving regulatory compliance, like CAP or ISO certification, can be painstaking and time-consuming. In our next webinar, Ms.Irmgard Feldman (Biorepository Manager) from the University of California (Davis) Pathology Center will talk about how they prepared for and successfully achieved CAP accreditation.

    Irmi will also give an overview of how they harness the configurability of OpenSpecimen and use it to collect data for many different types of projects.
