Best practice guidelines

Best practice guidelines for genetic testing are recommendations describing techniques or methods to perform a specific test in the best way possible. It provides professionals with a standard to perform the tests. This promotes uniformity in testing and results in a higher quality in terms of accuracy of results and interpretation.

These guidelines are usually drafted after best practice meetings with experts from the field. EuroGentest has actively participated in and organized many of these meetings in molecular genetics, biochemical genetics and (molecular) cytogenetics.

You can find lists of guidelines on the following pages:

The best practice guidelines are standards to which the quality of a laboratory can be evaluated. This is why they are an important measuring tool for external quality assessment (EQA) (click here for more information on EQA).
