PREANALYTICAL EQA TRIAL
Free trial for laboratory personnel involved in drawing samples (phlebotomy)
Did you know that the chores performed before the actual measurement of the sample may influence the patient’s test result? Factors such as use of correct tubes, proper specimen collection and accurate patient identification establish a crucial part of the laboratory testing phase. These errors are often invisible and may be impossible to discover later in the testing process.
Participate in the trial and see if you are able to find preanalytical errors
