The National Registry of Microbiologists (NRM) is the only organization certifying microbiologists in both clinical and non-clinical specialty areas. The goals of the NRM are: to minimize risk to the public by identifying qualified microbiologists; to encourage mastery of microbiological knowledge and skills that contribute to improving the human condition; and to encourage professional pride and a sense of accomplishment in qualified microbiologists.
Certification by the American Board of Medical Laboratory Immunology (ABMLI) is the highest credential available to practicing medical laboratory immunologists. This certification is recognized by federal and state governmental agencies as a significant component toward meeting licensure requirements to direct laboratories engaged in immunological diagnosis of human diseases and is recognized under CLIA '88. The ABMLI was established in 1975 to verify the academic and practical knowledge of immunologists seeking to direct medical immunology laboratories.
