Modify PT Method Codes right on your worksheet

By Editor on 12/3/2018

The latest QView™ Web update brings with it the ability to modify Proficiency Testing Method Codes right from the Analysis Worksheet! You may still use the dedicated Method Code Maintenance screen; however, the methods may be adjusted in a faster, easier and convenient way, right on the worksheet, without the need of another screen to distract you.  And, as a bonus feature, the changes will be shown immediately on the form itself (pending Consultant Technologist review and approval).

What's New in 2019?

  • New survey in the Chemistry program for Fecal Occult Blood — Fecal Immunochemical Test (CHEM-FIT)
  • The Fecal Immunochemical Test (CHEM-FIT) survey is specifically for immunochemical fecal occult blood testing. This survey will provide an external quality assessment of quantitative FIT results. Survey materials will provide concentration levels close to cut-off values used by these methodologies.
  • The Fecal Occult Blood (CHEM-FOB) survey was introduced in 2015 and will remain in the Chemistry program. Testing materials used in this survey are compatible with guaiac (gFOBT) and (FIT) methodologies. Participants can expect to submit qualitative results, such as: positive and negative.
  • Improvements to the Endocrinology program
  • To increase the stability of analytes in the survey material, the Endocrinology and Tumour Markers survey (ENDO) is now offered as two separate surveys — ENDO-A and ENDO-B.
