RNA reference materials with defined viral RNA loads of SARS-CoV-2 - A useful tool towards a better PCR assay harmonization

January 20, 2022
Author(s)
Laura Vierbaum, Nathalie Wojtalewicz, Vanessa Lindig, Ulf Duhring, Hans-Peter Grunert, Christian Drosten, Victor Corman, Daniela Niemeyer, Sandra Ciesek, Holger Rabenau, Annemarie Berger, Martin Obermeier, Andreas Nitsche, Janine Michel, Martin Mielke, Jim Huggett, Denise O'Sullivan, Simon Cowen, Megan Cleveland, Peter Vallone, Samreen Falak, Andreas Kummrow, Thomas Keller, Ingo Schellenberg, Heinz Zeichhardt, Martin Kammel
The outbreak and pandemic spread of SARS-CoV-2, the cause of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), led to the need for a reliable detection method to track the circulation of this virus. After introducing PCR methods for genome detection of SARS-CoV-2

One in seven pathogenic variants can be challenging to detect by NGS: an analysis of 450,000 patients with implications for clinical sensitivity and genetic test implementation

Stephen Lincoln, Tina Hambuch, Justin Zook, Sara Bristow, Kathryn Hatchell, Rebecca Truty, Michael Kennemer, Brian Shirts, Andrew Fellowes, Shimul Chowdhury, Eric Klee, Shazia Mahamdallie, Megan Cleveland, Peter Vallone, Yan Ding, Sheila Seal, Wasanthi DeSilva, Farol Tomson, Catherine Huang Huang, Russell Garlick, Nazneen Rahman, Marc L. Salit, Stephen Kingsmore, Matthew Ferber, Swaroop Aradhya, Robert Nussbaum
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is widely used and cost-effective. However, depending on the specific methods used, NGS can have limitations with certain technically challenging variant types. These types are poorly represented in some validation studies

Report of the 2019 NIST-FDA Workshop on Standards for Next Generation Sequencing Detection of Viral Adventitious Agents in Biologics and Biomanufacturing

February 22, 2021
Author(s)
Megan Cleveland, Bharathi Anekella, Mike Brewer, Pei-Ju Chin, Heather Couch, Eric Delwart, Jim Huggett, Scott Jackson, Javier Martin, Serge Monpoeho, Tom Morrison, Siemon Ng, David Ussery, Arifa Khan
Adventitious virus testing assures product safety by demonstrating the absence of viruses that may have been unintentionally introduced during the manufacturing process. The capabilities of next-generation or high-throughput sequencing (NGS/HTS) for broad

Development and Interlaboratory Evaluation of a NIST Reference Material RM 8366 for EGFR and MET Gene Copy Number Measurements

May 21, 2019
Author(s)
Hua-Jun He, Biswajit Das, Megan H. Cleveland, Chen Li, Corinne Camalier, Liang-Chu Liu, Kara L. Norman, Andrew Fellowes, Christopher McEvoy, Steven P. Lund, Jamie L. Almeida, Carolyn R. Steffen, Chris Karlovich, P. M. Williams, Kenneth D. Cole
The National Institute Standard and Technology (NIST) Reference Material RM 8366 was developed to improve the quality of gene copy measurements of EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor) and MET (proto-oncogene, receptor tyrosine kinase), important targets

Certification of Standard Reference Material 2365 BK Virus DNA Quantitative Standard

August 29, 2018
Author(s)
Megan H. Cleveland, Natalia Farkas, Kevin M. Kiesler, Blaza Toman, Peter M. Vallone
Standard Reference Material (SRM) 2365 is intended for use in the value assignment of BK virus deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) to BK DNA controls and standards. A unit of SRM 2365 consists of a well characterized, linearized plasmid, containing BK virus DNA
