SARS-CoV-2 has created significant challenges for laboratories, requiring the development, validation, and scale up of testing in a very short time period--often this was done for multiple methods due to capacity demands and supply chain shortages. Part of assuring quality test results is the confidence in testing that comes from a robust QC Program. In this webinar, the speakers will discuss different issues to be considered for QC material selection, as well as QC program design & strategies for SARS-CoV-2 molecular and serology testing.
1. Describe approaches to quality control for SARS-CoV-2 molecular testing that monitor the entire testing process
2. Discuss quality control approaches for high-throughput SARS-CoV-2 antibody tests
3. List 2 optimal QC practices for each methodology
