LiRa Reference Lab

Bel Air, Maryland, US

Along with Bala Family Practice, LiRa lab was established in 2009. It began as a low complexity lab performing routine CBC, urinalysis, and rapid tests. Each year since that, the lab has expanded its ability to perform more in depth and complex tests. In 2012, the lab passed state inspection with 100% and zero deficiencies. In 2013, due to the wide array of high complexity capabilities, the lab at Bala Family Practice was approved for Reference Lab Status, LiRa Reference Lab.

The laboratory is enrolled with Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). As part of CLIA regulation, the lab is required to perform and pass proficiency tests in order to ensure that patient results are reliable.

In 2015 LiRa Reference Lab enrolled with Commission of Office Laboratory Accreditation (COLA). With the dual accreditation and compliance, we can ensure that all laboratory tests are performed in a timely, professional manner.

LiRa Reference Lab has not listed any services.
