Guidance document on the use of reference materials in genetic testingFunded under: FP7-JRC
The aim of this guidance document is to provide a short and user-friendly support to genetic testing laboratories. It is based on internationally harmonised basic concepts and terminology for quality assurance and control (QA/QC). Relevant terms of the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) and the International Vocabulary of Metrology (VIM) are explained and references to other expert texts are provided. The document includes discussion and clarification of several often misunderstood issues. It takes into account the current scientific knowledge and the existing technological capabilities. This document may be revised, when appropriate, to take into account progress in science and technology and constitutes a deliverable of the NoE EuroGentest.
