Preventing Common Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) Testing Errors

Dec 6, 2022

Improve your NGS assay through review of proficiency testing/external quality assessment (PT/EQA) data.

Webinar Description

This webinar begins with PT/EQA data as potential sources of information about challenges in performing NGS, then expands to include categorization and discussion of recurring challenges found in somatic and germline NGS PT/EQA. It concludes with remedies to help further improve performance.

Webinar Objectives

  • Use the NGS PT/EQA data to understand recurrent weaknesses of laboratories performing NGS assays
  • Offer suggestions on how to mitigate the most common causes of unacceptable results on PT/EQA
  • Share ideas to improve sensitivity and specificity of NGS assays
