Clinical Laboratory Improvement Services

The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Services (CLIS) in the Public Health and Environmental Laboratories is charged, by statute, with two goals and critical responsibilities:

  • Protecting the health and safety of blood donors and transfusion recipients
  • Ensuring that clinical laboratories produce accurate and reliable test results.
  • To carry out these objectives, CLIS:
  • Develops New Jersey Administrative Code rules for licensing and operation of blood banks and clinical laboratories which reflect current, best practices and which meet or exceed applicable federal regulations;
  • Serves as the designated state agency for certification and inspection of clinical laboratories under the federal Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) of 1988;
  • Investigates hemolytic transfusion reactions, errors and complaints which jeopardize patient and donor health and safety; and
  • When necessary, imposes enforcement actions against blood banks and clinical laboratories.
