CF Network

The RCPAQAP are delighted to be partnered with the CF Network for the provision of their External Quality Assessment (EQA) for Cystic Fibrosis (CF).

The aim of the CF EQA scheme is to evaluate the entire analytical process, from DNA sample receipt and genotyping up to the written report (examples) with the final interpretation of the data as it is normally being sent to the clinician who requested for the genetic test.

As a result of this partnership, customers are now able to enrol in Cystic Fibrosis EQA through the RCPAQAP customer portal, myQAP. This offers the following advantages:

  • The convenience of being able to enrol in both company’s programs via our customer portal, myQAP
  • A reduction in importation fees for Australasian laboratories
