EQA Programme 2022

Labquality´s  new external quality assessment service programme includes more than 170 quality assessment schemes, covering all specialties of laboratory medicine. Furthermore, the programme includes an extensive selection of services designed for medical laboratories and point-of-care testing sites.

Integrated EQA Service

Integrated EQA service is a completely new approach to external quality assessment. New programs integrate pre- and post-analytical EQA schemes to traditional analytical EQA providing a full support for ISO15189 standard requirements.

Virtual microscopy demo

Labquality is using advanced virtual microscopy technology in several interpretative EQA schemes. On our demo site, you can test how virtual microscopy works, and verify that your internet browser is compatible with Aiforia cloud webmicroscope.

Clinically Relevant External Quality Assessment Service

All medical laboratories and point-of-care testing sites are recommended to verify their measurement quality through external quality assessment. Furthermore, external quality assessment is a basic requirement in all quality systems associated with laboratory operations. Labquality´s EQA schemes fully comply with ISO/EN 15189 requirements.

Local Partners create additional value

Labquality has EQA partners in more than 30 countries. Professional partners have high expertise in laboratory medicine and external quality assessment. Our partners support EQA customers in their native language and help them to improve and maintain high quality.

Delivery Calendar

We organise external quality assessment schemes based on an annually-published programme. The exact sample delivery dates are published in our delivery schedule a number of weeks before the delivery.
