Open Market Consultation (OMC)

The aim of the Open Market Consultation (OMC) is to fine-tune the specifications of the NGS workflow, consisting of 4 lots, for the Call for Tender. The OMC will be performed in two steps – a virtual meeting on March 22nd and 23rd and collection of feedback using a questionnaire (open from end of April to mid May, exact dates will be made available through the website). At the virtual meeting presentations on clinical and patient needs, and the 4 lots will be given by Consortium members, with open discussion after each presentation. We actively encourage attendees to provide input and ask questions, but there will be no company presentations. Attendance is free.
