GeneProof a.s. regularly performs quality verification for all of its products. All products are subject to internal and external quality assessments.

GeneProof PCR kits are regularly tested by QCMD and INSTAND e.V. External Quality Assessment Panels as a part of the used technology continual improvement.

It is the goal of the external assessment programs to aid monitor and improve quality of clinical laboratories by means of assessing the capability of the laboratories to use molecular diagnostics technologies in common clinical operations. The external quality assessment programs are regularly sent to the individual laboratories and subsequently processed and evaluated. Final reports and practical comments provide the participants with the possibility to identify and deal with eventual problems and simultaneously to monitor the efficiency of the quality control processes applied in their laboratories.
