Proficiency Testing

What is proficiency testing?
Proficiency Testing is a type of external quality control to measure a laboratory's accuracy. The practice of testing unknown specimens from an outside source provides an additional means to assure quality laboratory testing results.

But how do you monitor the quality of your laboratory´s results?
Laboratory results are very dependent on such variables as the method used, equipment, procedures, and the skills and training of the analyst.
Proficiency testing provides a documented, independent assessment of a laboratory's ability to produce accurate results.

Successful performance in an external proficiency testing program is a key indicator of high laboratory quality and an integral component of laboratory accreditation.
