Starting a new lab

Once again, I need to tap into the vast amount of knowledge.  The
pathologists and I are starting our own Histology/Cytology lab.  Can anyone
provide me information such as what regulations need to be followed?  Do we
need a CLIA number?  Does OSHA have to inspect the lab before operations
begin?  We are starting this lab in Texas.  Any information, phone numbers
web sites would be grateful.  This is a new adventure for me.  I never had
the opportunity to start a new lab before.  As always, thanks again for your
support and for sharing your knowledge.
