Next Generation Sequencing has evolved very rapidly and is now used for molecular testing in clinical laboratories This powerful technology offers many exciting opportunities for use in clinical testing.  However, NGS also presents many challenges as well.  These challenges include the differences between research and clinical labs, and the rapid evolution of platforms, protocols, and reagents.  There is a need to recognize the NGS challenges that are specific to CLIA lab environments and to identify some of the considerations that are needed when developing and validating clinical NGS tests.  Some specific clinical applications will be presented.
