Working group 4

In WG4, work progress is according to the road map. The conducted survey were closed and data are currently being assessed. An outline of tasks and time have been agreed upon between the writers of the report/scientific paper. The scientific paper/report have tentatively been scheduled for submission in ultimo April 2014. Two temporary sub-WG’s have been formed to work directly:

  • By providing the various documents (guidelines, SOPs etc) to facilitate the proficiency testing
  • To discuss in details how to analyse the dry lab data. Several conference calls have been scheduled for January!
  • Additionally, the WG is currently engaged in locating/selecting suitable reference material. FDA has already located the majority of the data for the dry lab component and a list of potential target organisms have been created for the wet lab component. The WG has also been in contact with the US NIST discussing the utility of already prepared reference material for the use in the GMI PT
