Update to 2021 DNA extraction from saliva EQA
22 September 2021
Statement from GenQA, 22nd September 2021:
This EQA was planned for distribution in November, however as COVID-19 case numbers remain high, there is still health and safety concerns with the collection and distribution of saliva. In addition, we are aware that many laboratories are currently not accepting saliva samples.
Due to this, GenQA and the Sample Handling Specialist Advisory Group have taken the decision to delay this EQA. We will continue to monitor the situation and look to provide this EQA when it is appropriate to do so.
Thank you for your understanding during these difficult times and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
