Enabling Precision Medicine with Highly Multiplexed and Patient-like Reference Materials, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - February 08, 2017) - Next generation sequencing (NGS) based clinical genomics assays are increasingly being offered by laboratories worldwide across a wide range of disease areas, including cancer, reproductive health, inherited disease and infectious disease. Developing, optimizing, and monitoring such assays however can be a time consuming and challenging task.

Scientists and clinicians can build and implement robust and accurate clinical genomics assays with the help of highly multiplexed and patient-like reference materials.

These innovative and expert-designed materials:

  • Expedite assay development, improve robustness, and better characterize your assay
  • Help ensure confidence in the diagnostic result and overall laboratory test performance
  • Enable the development of global QC standards including proficiency materials to allow for better inter-laboratory comparisons of performance

Join industry expert Sandi Deans, Consultant Clinical Scientist and Director of UK National External Quality Assessment Service (UK NEQAS) for Molecular Genetics as she discusses a case study of how a global external quality assessment (EQA) organization is using these reference materials to ensure the accuracy and consistency of one such clinical genomics application in non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT).

The live broadcast takes place on Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at 1pm EST. For more information or to register for this complimentary event, visit: Enabling Precision Medicine with Highly Multiplexed and Patient-like Reference Materials
