The Importance of quality control for dramatically growing genetic tests continues to be emphasized with increasing clinical demands. Diagnostic genetics subcommittee of KSQACP performed one proficiency trial for molecular genetic tests and two trials for cytogenetic study in 1999. The trial for molecular studies included genetic tests for genetic disorders (DMD/BMD, Apo E genotyping), hematologic malignancies and infectious diseases (tuberculosis, hepatitis C, cytomegalovirus and herpes simplex virus), The trial materials for molecular tests were distributed to 46 laboratories and answered correctly in most laboratories except some problems in nomenclature and analysis for microdeletion syndromes. External quality assessment program for diagnostic genetics could be helpful to improve the quality of genetic laboratory by continuous education and good quality control materials.
