Convenient results summary for lab ms smart qa proficiency testing scheme
The new annual results summary provided to participants in Lab M's SMART QA Proficiency Testing Scheme for the food industry summarises a participating laboratory's activities for one calendar year in a single page report.
Offering a realistic yet concise overview of the lab's methods and proficiencies, the review is informative and easy to understand.
SMART QA offers a simple, comprehensive means of providing documentary evidence of laboratory performance in microbiology testing, with up to 15 tests covered. Samples are supplied as milk powders, rather than freeze-dried vials, to more closely reflect food testing conditions.
Labs may select a combination from three mixes of organisms - Standard, Standard Plus and Pathogen - to suit local needs. Samples are received either monthly or every other month and tested using the lab's normal protocols. Results are returned to Lab M for processing where individual lab results are compared against a reference range for each parameter and with the average across all participants.
For full details of the organisms available, visit www.labm.com or contact Lab M on +44 (0) 161 797 5729 to find out more about the SMART QA scheme.
