The measurement of Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) populations is often performed following treatment for Leukaemic disorders. The levels of MRD are used as a predictive factor for relapse and as an indicator for patients entering remission. As such the measurement of MRD can have a direct effect on the treatment regimen of a patient.
The Minimal Residual Disease in AML programme will issue up to four send outs per financial year. Each send out will include a reference sample and two follow up samples of a known AML case post treatment at different time points.
Participants will be asked to quantify the level of residual disease in the follow up samples. If you wish to be involved in the study please contact email@example.com.
No activities in relation to this EQA programme are subcontracted.
