AMP 2016 ANNUAL MEETING - BIG WORLD. MOLECULAR MEDICINE. ONE COMMUNITY.

AMP 2016 International Showcase

 

Quality Assurance and Standardization of Molecular Testing Around the World

In the global community of molecular medicine, there is a need to ensure consistency and standardization among all clinical diagnostic laboratories for providing the best patient care. During this year's event, International AMP members will share their experiences in quality assurance and laboratory accreditation for molecular diagnostic testing. A panel discussion will then follow on topics such as external quality assurance (EQA)/Proficiency Testing (PT) programs, and ISO 15189:2012 laboratory accreditation. CAP International accreditation will also be addressed. After the presentations, an open forum discussion will be facilitated to address the challenges and opportunities for moving towards one molecular community.

 

This program is open to AMP 2016 Annual Meeting international attendees, but space is limited.  Registration is required.

AMP IAC Members and AMP International Affiliates are indicated on this Google map.
Come be a part of this global community of the molecular world!
