The ABMLI was established in 1975 to test the expertise of immunologists. Board-certified immunologists are adjudged capable to direct laboratories engaged in the practice of medical laboratory immunology. Certification by the ABMLI is the highest credential available to practicing medical laboratory immunologists.
ABMLI certification is recognized by federal and state governmental agencies as a significant component toward meeting licensure requirements to direct laboratories engaged in the microbiological diagnosis of human disease. It is recognized under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 final rule and in all 12 states that require licensure: California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Montana, Nevada, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
