15.15 | 12.15 – A Public-Private Consortium to Develop Quality Control Materials for Circulating Tumor DNA

Time: 3:15 pm
day: Day One


  • The goal of the FNIH Quality Control Material (QCM) project is to develop a universal set of well-vetted, quality control materials (QCMs) for the liquid biopsy community
  • The project is proceeding in 3 phases; Phase 1, a performance evaluation of the QCMs, is complete and the results will be presented
  • Phase 2 (a functional characterization study) and Phase 3 (a real-world clinical pilot of the QCMs in 10 academic and commercial laboratories) are in the planning stages and the designs will be presented
