The QCMD (Quality Control for Molecular Diagnostic) is an external quality assurance programme that helps to monitor and improve quality within clinical laboratories. Their SARS-CoV-2 EQA programme assesses the sensitivity of assays routinely used for molecular detection of SARS-CoV-2 at clinically appropriate levels, near the limit of detection as well as the specificity of assays in the presence of other human coronaviruses.
In the latest October 2021 programme, laboratory using DiagCor’s GenoScreenTM SARS-CoV-2 qRT-PCR Assay, together with DiagPuroTM Nucleic Acid Extraction System and Genesis 96Q Real-time PCR System) has participated and attained fully proficient (100% proficient) status. SARS-CoV-2 variants (B.1, B1.1.7 & B1.351) were being successfully detected. DiagCor Life Science prioritizes high product quality and actively supports SARS-CoV-2 testing services in laboratories worldwide, thus contributing to fight against COVID-19.
