Starting in January 2019, IQMH will be implementing the new WarmMark® Short run temperature monitoring strips for Proficiency Testing surveys that require temperature monitoring.
As part of the verification process, the new temperature indicator strips were placed with the survey material of randomly selected laboratories along with the current strips for some 2018 surveys. Results from both were compared and participants’ feedback was taken into consideration before implementation of the new temperature monitoring strips. Participants will find the new strips easy to use.
Participants will receive instructions on how to read and record the results of the new temperature monitoring strips in their survey material packages. Instructions are also available in QView™ in the Documents section in the folder “General - Proficiency Testing” within PT User Information.
