All laboratory test methods must meet scientifically rigorous criteria before they can be used in clinical practice. For commercial tests in the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reviews the scientific evidence to ensure that:
- The test is accurately able to detect or measure the substance it claims to detect or measure, and
- The measurement or detection of the substance provides important information about an illness or about health status that assists in the diagnosis, treatment, or monitoring of a patient.
