About the Webinar

The clinical applications of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies are continuing to advance. Sanger sequencing is still generally considered the gold standard but this comes with low throughput and high cost (American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics, 2013). However advances in this Next Generation Sequencing are reducing the cost of sequencing, whilst facilitating new mechanisms for disease prediction.

Next Generation sequencing is becoming an appealing option with much higher throughput and potential to change the face of genetic medicine (American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics, 2013). However care must be taken to ensure high levels of control are maintained, this can be achieved through validation and reporting controls where specific NGS requirements are expected, in addition to those mandated by clinical accreditation and certification programmes.

Here we present the clinical application of next generation sequencing and implication of the latest NY State Guidelines.


  • Where are NGS and LDTs headed?
  • How do you identify and eradicate sources of variability in your workflow?
  • What do New York State Guidelines mean for your laboratory?
  • What are the new NGS validation requirements?

Meet the presenters

Jonathan Frampton, PhD
Jonathan has a PhD from the University of Sussex and has almost 10 years experience in molecular diagnostics. He has a strong background in functional genomics and gene editing and is currently focusing on reducing variability in the workflow through reference standards for molecular diagnostics.

Hannah Murfet
Hannah is a medical biochemist turned quality professional with a strong interest in the future of quality and regulatory management with focus on advances in medical technology. Hannah is involved with the Chartered Quality Institute predominantly as Vice Chair of the Next Generation Network and first appointed young representative to the Advisory Council, through which she advocates the role quality management in business.

Who should attend?

This webinar is aimed at molecular pathologists and NGS laboratories for all those involved in any part of Quality Control.
