Genetic Testing Reference Materials Coordination Program (GeT-RM)

The goal of the Genetic Testing Reference Materials Coordination Program (GeT-RM) is to coordinate a self-sustaining community process to improve the availability of appropriate and characterized reference materials for:

  • Quality control (QC)
  • Proficiency testing (PT)
  • Test development & validation
  • Research

The purpose of this program is:

  • To help the genetic testing community obtain appropriate and characterized reference materials
  • To facilitate and coordinate information exchange between users and providers of QC and reference materials
  • To coordinate efforts for contribution, development, characterization and distribution of reference materials for genetic testing
