This webinar provides a practical approach to using reference standards to define the performance characteristics of new next-generation sequencing assays during validation.

In this webinar, Robyn Sussman and Ashkan Bigdeli from the Center for Personalized Diagnostics at the University of Pennsylvania discuss how they used reference standards as part of the validation workflow for their NGS assays.

In one case, they used standards with varying degrees of damage to validate a low-input assay that can accommodate highly compromised formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded tissues.
