CMV Working Group

The CMV Working Group is comprised of AMP members with a uniform interest in standardizing CMV quantitation by PCR. This group was formed in the fall of 2003 under the leadership of Dr. Daynna Wolff. The current focus of the group is to work with the National Institutes of Standards and Technologies (NIST) for the formation of a standard unit for CMV PCR, to which all labs can normalize their system.
