The German Societies for Clinical Chemistry (DGKC) and Laboratory Medicine (DGLM) have established an official working group on molecular diagnostics in the field of laboratory medicine. The group's objectives are to support the establishment of molecular biology methods for the use in diagnostics in German clinical laboratories. Towards this end, we have defined specific aims, which are 1) the implementation and extension of external quality assessment (EQA) schemes and methodological exercises offered to clinical diagnostic laboratories, 2) the establishment of a proficiency network and data base within the societies, 3) the implementation of an educational program in molecular diagnostic procedures for clinical chemists and laboratory physicians through the organisation of symposia and workshops and 4) the cooperation with other DGKC/DGLM working groups on shared aspects of laboratory analysis, e.g. preanalytics. The focus of this presentation is to introduce some of these goals in more detail with particular emphasis on the first two program aspects and to discuss experiences with these activities.
