Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)

Maine EMS Services that perform Blood Glucose analysis, or other sampling tests, fall under CLIA requirements and must follow these federal guidelines.

"CLIA requires all entities that perform even one test, including waived test on ... "materials derived from the human body for the purpose of providing information for the diagnosis, prevention or treatment of any disease or impairment of, or the assessment of the health of, human beings" to meet certain Federal requirements. If an entity performs tests for these purposes, it is considered under CLIA to be a laboratory and must register with the CLIA program."
