Tasks 7.4: SOPs and EQA

Based on the continuous evaluation and validation of novel rapid diagnostic methods, an inventory of the best performing tests will be made for laboratories and SOPs will be developed for test protocols to be used during epidemics. At the same time, an External Quality Assessment (EQA) will be set up (procedures and proficiency panel), the main objective of this EQA being to confirm that laboratory’s SOPs and IQC procedures are working satisfactory. The EQA panel will consist of specimens focusing on the target bacteria or viruses studied in the project and in the clinical trials.
