Summary Measures of Quality
As of August 24, 2016
- One error over 12 years of laboratory operation out of ~10,000 Proficiency Tests, both external and internal. For individual gene sequencing tests and panel sequencing tests, we count each exon as a Proficiency Test.
- Comparison of our Sanger sequencing to NextGen Sequence Data:
Four errors out of 19.5 Mb sequenced (~7,400 sequence variants) (all four errors were the result of allele dropout during PCR).
- Comparison of our NextGen sequencing to Sanger sequence data and to NextGen sequence data from other labs:
One error out of 7.0 Mb sequenced (~9,800 sequence variants).
Ten specimen labeling errors out of ~45,000 opportunities, but only one of which led to an incorrect report.
