Belgium: EMQN CIC Oncopanel EQA program

Belgium
Collaboration

General details

Recent therapeutic developments in NGS are revolutionizing biomarker detection in oncology however, only a slow transition towards the use of comprehensive genomic assessment has been observed irrespective, of the fact that many labs are equipped with these NGS platforms.

As part of this collaboration, you will:
- Receive Diaceutics sponsored enrollment onto the Oncopanel 20 EQA module. This program is being offered for labs using high throughput technologies (e.g., NGS, MassArray etc) to help accurately validate assay sensitivity and specificity. Please visit the EMQN website for further details.
- Contribute insight to support publication of a white paper article that focuses on day to day considerations that influence NGS adoption for clinical testing purposes.

Enrolment for the 2021 Oncopanel module is active from 21st September 2020 to 31st March 2021. Please note that this collaboration may close early if the maximum number of participants has been met before the 31st March 2021. Should you be interested in this collaboration, we recommend that the lab profile and assay information is completed as soon as possible, as per defined requirements, to ensure your participation in this module.

Requirements

To be eligible to participate in this collaboration please ensure that:

Lab profile information reflects:
i) Available in-house NGS/real-time PCR platform details
ii) External Quality Assurance (EQA) schemes or proficiency testing (PT) programs that are being subscribed to for molecular NSCLC biomarkers

Lab assay details reflecting
i) At least 3 of the following molecular NSCLC biomarker
- EGFR
- BRAF
- KRAS
- MET (including ex14 skipping)
- NTRK fusions
- RET fusions and mutations
ii) Q1, Q2 and Q3 2020 volumes for the selected molecular biomarker testing in NSCLC that is covered within your service

*Please note, where multiple assays are available in-house, these have to be logged as individual assays per technology
