Details

This external quality assessment (EQA) scheme focuses on raising awareness:

  • of the molecular methods used
  • in the variations of the molecular methods used which can subsequently highlight differences in PT results obtained
  • in limitation of molecular methods available on the market
  • of updates in ISO methods
