Genomics Quality Assessment (GenQA) provides a quality assurance service for genomics through a broad consistent and sustainable range of relevant external quality assessments (EQAs) at a reasonable cost to the genomic community worldwide.

GenQA provides objective information and advice to laboratories and individuals on the quality of their analytical and interpretative performance in order to help them provide accurate and reliable test results and advice which ultimately facilitates optimal patient care.

Advances in our understanding of genomic medicine has led to a revolution in testing availability and GenQA is committed to providing external quality assessment in this rapidly evolving field.
