With a focus on continual improvement, the IQMH Genetics Scientific Committee has reviewed and revised the survey instructions and submission requirements for supporting documentation for GENE proficiency testing (PT) surveys. These changes will be implemented for the GENE-1904-CG survey.
On the GENE analysis worksheet, the Reporting Instructions, Submission Instructions and Submission Requirements sections have been rewritten to clarify expectations for the survey.

Assays, especially those in clinical chemistry, are designed to measure analytes (i.e. the measurand) in the appropriate patient specimens. However, there is the potential for inaccurate analyte measurements when testing materials that are different from patient specimens. Examples include quality control (QC) material, proficiency testing (PT) material, and other types of patient specimens such as body fluids.

Proficiency testing is the determination of participant performance by means of inter-laboratory comparisons. The IQMH Proficiency Testing programs are designed to provide regular, objective and independent assessment of a participant’s ability to provide an acceptable standard of service by comparison with peers. Comparison of all results provides insight into performance that is not available to the individual participants.
The Centre for Proficiency Testing is excited to offer 127 surveys to Ontario-licensed facilities in 2017!
A complete list of the testing programs can be found in the 2017 Proficiency Testing Catalogue.
