Thandela Proficiency Testing schemes
Operate by providing participating laboratories with test samples for analysis. Laboratories analyze the test samples, preferably as part of their normal routine, and reports the results to the scheme organizers. They are then provided with a report showing how closely their results agree with the accepted values.
Regular participation in a proficiency-testing scheme:
- Provides staff with an insight into their laboratory's performance
- Benchmarks performance with that of other participant laboratories
- Demonstrates to end users of analytical data, regulatory bodies and accreditation bodies that there is a commitment to measurement quality.
