ARUP Global—Quality

Quality and Automation

Quality

ARUP’s quality program touches all aspects of testing operations, including vendor qualification and monitoring, pre- and post-analytical processes, and data security.

  • Patient safety comes first.
  • ARUP operates under high-complexity CLIA regulations.
  • Select areas of testing are also performed under Quality System Regulation (21 CFR 820) or Good Clinical Laboratory Practices.

Automation

ARUP Laboratories is one of the most automated laboratories in North America. Since 1998, lost specimens have been reduced by 80 percent to near Six Sigma levels, and turnaround times have been reduced by 30 percent. Automation has more than doubled the efficiency of many of our laboratory sections.
