Starting in January 2019, IQMH will be implementing the new WarmMark® Short run temperature monitoring strips for Proficiency Testing surveys that require temperature monitoring.
IQMH is pleased to announce the release of the 2016 Proficiency Testing Catalogue that contains the upcoming year’s analytes/parameters monitored.
The IQMH Centre for Proficiency Testing has planned 115 challenge surveys for 2016. Stay tuned for the release of the new catalogue.

Now that QMP-LS is IQMH, do Ontario licensed laboratories have to order PT programs?
No. Ontario-licensed laboratories will continue to receive surveys through the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC)-funded program for their primary instrument and/or methodology. Survey registrations will continue to be arranged according to the information that we receive from the Ontario MOHLTC, regarding laboratory’s scope of testing in their licence. Please do not place orders for your primary instrument or method. (See Testing for Multiple Instruments).
