Embryologists: Be Certified by a Recognized Board

The American Board of Bioanalysis (ABB) is the only certifying board recognized by CLIA that also certifies individuals in embryology. ABB was one of only four certifying boards for laboratory directors recognized in the original CLIA regulations (CLIA '67).

ABB is also the only certifying board recognized by state licensing boards that certify individuals in embryology. ABB certification is also recognized by ASRM and two major accrediting agencies: the College of American Pathologists (CAP) and The Joint Commission.

If you are interested in a certification that is recognized and respected, contact the ABB office at (314) 241-1445 or go to: www.abbcert.org for more information.
