CMC EXTERNAL QUALITY ASSURANCE SCHEME (EQAS)
(Under the aegis of ACBI)
CIRCULAR FOR CMC EQAS - 2018
 
 Dear Sir/Madam,
       

The new cycle of External Quality Assurance Scheme [EQAS] will begin in January 2018. The scheme provides twelve lyophilized human sera / whole blood samples in batches of four, once in every four months. The results should be submitted through the EQAS web site. The  laboratory's  performance  will  be  evaluated in  terms  of  statistical  parameters recommended by WHO.

Please renew your participation by 20th December 2017, failing which your option to enter results will automatically close. An online feedback form for the 2017 cycle will be posted on the website by 1st January 2018 and the participants are requested to fill it up and update the same before 15th January 2018. This is mandatory for those labs who have participated in the 2017 cycle.

We are pleased to inform that the HbA1c and Reproductive Hormone programs are included into the scope of accreditation by the NABL for ISO/IEC 17043. The other programs namely the Chemistry I and II, Thyroid Hormones & Cortisol were already accredited since 2013.

 Dispatch of samples is done once in four months, during the 3rd week of February, May, and September. The laboratories are requested to reconstitute the correct sample, analyse and enter the results in the web site before the 20th of every month. Any amendments can be made only till the 25th of the month and it should be sent through an email only clearly mentioning the lab number and reason for amendment. Once the report is published on the net, no amendment can be made. Evaluation of the report is based on WHO and ISO 13528:2015 recommend expressions such as Robust mean for the assigned value, Variance Index Score (VIS), % bias and SDI (Z score) for individual parameters.

 Revisions are made in the registration fee to include the GST and for including Downs Screening markers in the accreditation scope.
