At GenQA, we offer laboratories and individuals a one stop shop in the provision of high quality EQA. Here are just some of the ways we serve our genomic community.
With our increased level of expertise we are able provide more than 100 unique EQAs which includes all parts of the sample/patient journey from sample reception through to genetic counselling. This gives us greater flexibility in providing genomic EQAs to small specialist laboratories and larger facilities, whilst also catering for clinical geneticists and individuals with our individual competency assessments. Quite simply, a one stop shop for genomic EQAs.
We are proud to be meeting the need for a global genomic EQA provider when the repertoire of genomic tests is expanding. Wherever you or your laboratory/clinical genetics centre is based, we can support you - making an impact around the world with more than 80 countries participating in EQAs through GenQA.
Our team applies real world knowledge to each and every activity; gained from their collective, vast experience from laboratory environments just like yours. We believe in what we do and the skillset we have - and we know it's needed and makes a difference.
Our knowledge, with the support of our expert assessors, means we can encourage best practice and improvements with the clinical laboratory sector at all levels; whether it be in EQA result reports or, more widely, through best practice meetings, workshops and papers.
Independence in our EQA marking is a core component of the GenQA approach; whether you're working with our in-house team, or with our wider network of assessors.
Proud to be the preferred genomics EQA provider for NHS England (as part of the UKNEQAS consortium) - being awarded the tender in 2019 for all genomics NHS tests included in the 'National Genomics Testing Directory'.
GenQA provide individual feedback tailored to your laboratory, as well as general recommendations to improve your performance and quality. We also provide several Participant Scientific meetings and workshops throughout the year, as well as presenting at many international conferences.
We're a partnership - you and us. We get to know you, we choose the right GenQA team for the job to deliver on your requirements and place teamwork at the heart of our relationship, with each other and with you.
GenQA is constantly improving the standard of External Quality Assessment (EQA) provided to participants. In order to ensure GenQA is delivering a service required by the participants, we invited all participants to complete a User Satisfaction survey in October 2019. A report based on the survey findings was published in March 2020.
