Remedial Proficiency Testing
Remedial proficiency testing is a service API offers to those who need to test specimens in addition to regular proficiency testing. This is usually required when a laboratory has had poor performance on a particular analyte in two of three test events. If your laboratory encounters a need for this service (which includes a written performance evaluation), call to speak with a Technical Specialist for more details. Remedial evaluations are not included in our A2LA scope of accreditation.
Self Evaluation sampled are samples from prior PT events with peer generated expected ranges. These samples include testing instructions and self-reporting worksheets and can be used for new method validation, staff training, or troubleshooting failures from another PT provider.
Occasionally, laboratories wish to re-test a proficiency testing sample as part of a corrective action plan. Most API samples are available for this purpose at a nominal charge.
