IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Applied Biology, Inc. ("Applied Biology") announced today it has submitted an application for CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act) accreditation with the California Department of Public Health. In addition, Applied Biology has appointed Dr. Daniel YK Chan as its Laboratory Director. According to Applied Biology's CEO – Professor Doctor Andy Goren: "breakthrough research into the molecular biology underlying skin and hair disorders occurs at a rapid pace; however, only few molecular diagnostic tests are readily available to patients and clinicians.

Among the research and development services, the Applied Biology Laboratory offers the development of drug response markers (DNA and mRNA) for skin and hair disorders, hair and skin cell culturing assays and novel assays for in-vitro assessment of drug efficacy in the treatment of hair disorders.
