The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) Dataset includes records of all commercially marketed laboratory tests categorized by CDC or FDA.
For each Document Number that refers to 510(k), Premarket approval (PMA), humanitarian device exemption (HDE) or 510(k) exempt number, a Parent Number, Analyte Id and name, a Test System Id and the Specialty Id are listed.
The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) regulate laboratory testing and require clinical laboratories to be certificated by their state as well as the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) before they can accept human samples for diagnostic testing. Laboratories can obtain multiple types of CLIA certificates, based on the kinds of diagnostic tests they conduct.
Three federal agencies are responsible for CLIA: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Center for Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Each agency has a unique role in assuring quality laboratory testing.
