Details

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

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