As one of the newest additions to our program for 2021 we are introducing an EQA scheme for gastric biomarkers. Gastric biomarker testing is intended as the first-line diagnostics for dyspeptic complaints to detect Helicobacter pylori infection and atrophic gastritis (mucosal atrophy) caused by helicobacter or autoimmune disease.
EQA Scheme Information
Two Gastric biomarkers EQA rounds will be conducted annually. The first round will be in May 2021 with a pilot study status and the second round will be distributed in November 2021. Each round will include two samples. The participants will submit their results through Labquality´s online platform LabScala. The results will be processed by the EQA coordinator and result evaluations will be published in the final report distributed to all participants.
Samples: 2 samples/round – lyophilized or liquid samples
