Quality Control (QC) metrics & standards
To ensure data quality, we monitor several QC metrics and incorporate controls during sample processing. These practices are required as part of our CLIA compliant programs. They are also recommended in voluntary genomic data submissions to the FDA and are recognized best practices. Our efforts promote standardization initiatives including the External RNA Control Consortium (ERCC), MicroArray Quality Control (MAQC) and Sequencing Quality Control (SEQC) Consortiums.
