Find Quality Management Systems (QMS) Tools and Resources

The Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Quality Initiative is developing an NGS-focused quality management system (QMS) to address the many challenges public health and clinical laboratories encounter when they develop and implement NGS-based tests, by providing ready-to-implement guidance documents, customizable standard operating procedures, and other tools. The project is funded by CDC’s Office of Advanced Molecular Detection, and is co-led by the Division of Laboratory Systems, the Office of the Deputy Director for Infectious Diseases, and the Association of Public Health Laboratoriesexternal icon.

Get the tools and resources that will support your QMS, learn about the initiative, meet our partners, and find additional NGS materials.
