The best schemes and assessments

EMQN offers External Quality Assessment (EQA) schemes, also referred to as proficiency tests (PT). But we go far beyond simply selling these schemes.

EMQN’s EQA schemes are designed and developed to test the whole analytical process of a molecular diagnostics laboratory, from sample, through testing and interpretation, to final report.

For each EQA we provide at least two expert peer assessors who will meticulously evaluate your ability to interpret your results in relation to mock clinical referral information, as well as assessing the clarity and accuracy of your final report.

Participation means you can rest assured you are providing the best possible clinical diagnostic procedures, analytical performance, and clinical interpretation.
