Quality Control & Eqa

Why use EQA?

External Quality Assessment is an essential aspect of any laboratory operation providing labs with a means of assessing their analytical performance compared to other laboratories utilising the same methods and instruments. The main functions include:

  • Maintaining and improving analytical quality
  • Improving interlaboratory agreement thus raising standards
  • Detecting equipment failures, identifying reagent problems, reviewing staff training
  • Initiating and evaluating corrective actions
  • Comparing different analytical methods
