International COVID-19 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).

4 rounds of testing took place in April 2020-January 2021. Any interested laboratories from around the world can apply to participate by email to: pav@mendelcenter.org
