CBQA is a Canadian-based international quality assurance program for biomarker testing. CBQA is focused on proficiency testing (PT) for laboratory protocols and biomarker readout. CBQA has two arms:
As an academic program, CBQA explores innovative approaches to PT for diagnostic, prognostic and predictive biomarkers, and aims to develop evidence relevant to future design of PT for this purpose.
CBQA also organizes educational events in the form of symposia and academic conferences where participants are invited to present and discuss their experiences with diagnostic, prognostic and predictive biomarkers.
CBQA Readout PT for the readout (+/- interpretation) of various diagnostic, prognostic and predictive biomarkers. This program is relevant for pathologists, clinical scientists, medical laboratory technologists.
