What is an EQA (External Quality Assessment) scheme? 

An EQA scheme is designed to allow laboratories providing testing services to test their own testing procedures, strategies and interpretations. EMQN will mark the results which you provide and send results. 

What is included within a scheme? 

EMQN will produce and send physical samples in most cases and a scheme will typically have between  2 and 10 samples. We also provide the experts who will mark and harmonise results.

What other services does EMQN provide?

EMQN is a community interest company, by definition our community is the genomics community and we provide Education, Accredited Learning Opportunities, Help and Advice to our members.
