Theranos can operate its Scottsdale lab because it has appealed the lab-certificate revocation, which could drag on for years. The California-based company has been plagued with issues, including a federal investigation into its operating deficiencies.
Theranos Lab Still Open In Scottsdale Despite Violations Posing 'Immediate Jeopardy'
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services lab inspectors moved to revoke Theranos' lab certificate effective Sept. 5 after finding multiple deficiencies at the company's Newark, Calif., lab. The certificate revocation also would force the shutdown of its Scottsdale lab. But more than two weeks after the Sept. 5 shutdown date passed, the company continues to draw blood from metro Phoenix customers and process those blood samples at its Scottsdale lab.
