Section 483.091, Florida Statutes 2004
483.091 Clinical laboratory license.--A person may not conduct, maintain, or operate a clinical laboratory in this state, except a laboratory that is exempt under s. 483.031, unless the clinical laboratory has obtained a license from the agency. A clinical laboratory may not send a specimen drawn within this state to any clinical laboratory outside the state for examination unless the out-of-state laboratory has obtained a license from the agency. A license is valid only for the person or persons to whom it is issued and may not be sold, assigned, or transferred, voluntarily or involuntarily, and is not valid for any premises other than those for which the license is issued. However, a new license may be secured for the new location before the actual change, if the contemplated change complies with this part and the rules adopted under this part. Application for a new clinical laboratory license must be made 60 days before a change in the ownership of the clinical laboratory.
