International CoronaVirus External Quality Assurance Scheme

Building on the expertise acquired during the past 17 years of running EHEQAS, Dr Pavlos Neophytou has founded ICOVEQAS in March 2020 to meet the significant need for a reliable EQA scheme for molecular assays that test for SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19).

The first round of testing is scheduled to be sent to participating laboratories on 11 May 2020. Any interested laboratrories from around the world can apply to participate by email to: pav@mendelcenter.org
