The Alzheimer's Association QC program for CSF biomarkers

The Alzheimer’s Association external quality control (QC) program aims to monitor site-to-site and batch-to-batch CSF test variation and help participating Labs to synchronize their procedures and enable them to see how their local performance of a given assay compares relative to other participant’s using the same assay. The ultimate goal is to reduce site-to-site variation, harmonize levels and pave the way for uniform cut-off levels. This external QC program comes free of charge to participating labs.
