2017 SoGATS (Standardisation of Genomic Amplification Techniques and Serology/ Standardisation of Infection Diagnostics) workshop


SoGATS 2017

  • Lead the development of WHO Reference Reagents and International Standards (ISs) suitable for NAT and serological infectious disease assays (for screening of blood donations, plasma pool testing and diagnostics)
  • Promote standardisation of NAT and serological assays through inter-laboratory comparison studies or collaborations with EQA providers
  • Provide a forum for the exchange of information to develop standards to support new technologies
  • Provide a forum to react quickly to the standardisation needs of emerging or re-emerging pathogens 

This year's workshop will run over 2.5 days and will incorporate some exciting new topics such as the use of NGS in the clinical setting and a first look at bacterial molecular diagnostics.

Following on from last year's workshop we will continue with addressing serological issues on day 3, this year topics such as serological parasitology diagnostics and avidity testing will be addressed.
