CLIA-Approved Markers

Eighteen EDRN developed biomarker tests are available in Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) approved laboratories. Eight diagnostic tests or devices supported by the EDRN have also been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for clinical use.

The CLIA-approved tests are shown in the chart below.
