ACBI-CMC EXTERNAL QUALITY ASSURANCE SCHEME (EQAS)
CIRCULAR FOR EQAS - 2014
 
 Dear Sir/Madam,
       Seasons greetings to you all. We are pleased to inform you that the new cycle of External Quality Assurance Scheme [EQAS] will begin in January 2014. The scheme provides twelve lyophilized human sera / whole blood samples in batches of four, once every four months. Every month one sample is reconstituted and analyse all / most number of the biochemical parameters included in the scheme. The results should be entered into the EQAS web site. The laboratory’s performance will be evaluated in terms of statistical parameters recommended by WHO.

        In the new cycle for certain parameters like creatinine, glucose etc. in addition to the method mean value, an accurate value traceable to the IFCC approved reference method will be provided (VCRM Value Corrected to Reference Mean). The bias of the labs value from the international reference method value will be clearly seen. Though very expensive this adds value of the programme.

Registration :
    ‘EQAS registration’ at home page allows both new registration and renewals.
 
    The newly registered laboratory will be given a lab number and password with which the lab can login.
 
Renewal of membership :
   Mention the lab number and address on the form as well as on the back side of the DD, otherwise it will be considered as a new registration. The registration fee details are given in the registration/renewal form.
                 
      Please arrange to send the DD as soon as you draw it, since it is valid only for 3 months.
