One of the most significant changes in 2020 is the redesign of the Proficiency Testing (PT) Chemistry program. A summary of changes to the Serum and Urine Chemistry surveys can be seen in Table 1.
The first Urine Chemistry survey of the year is now closed, and completely redesigned survey reports will be provided to participants. An instruction document has been created to guide participants in interpreting the new survey reports. Participants are encouraged to read the document, Instruction - Interpretation of Proficiency Testing Survey Reports - CHEM, which is available in QView™.

The IQMH Centre for Proficiency Testing is pleased to announce the availability of its Proficiency Testing Programs in the 2020 Catalogue.
Attention: Chemistry and Endocrinology Proficiency Testing (PT) Participants
The release of the 2020 Proficiency Testing Programs included changes to the Chemistry survey. The new Serum Chemistry (CHEM) survey consists of analytes that were previously in the Routine Chemistry (CHEM), Drug Monitoring (DRUG), Enzymes and Bilirubin (ENZY), and Lipids (LIPS) surveys, except ethanol and tobramycin which have been removed from the program. The following new analytes have also been added: cholinesterase, CK-MB, fructosamine.
Participants can now customize their surveys according to their laboratory’s test menus (serum chemistry only). Choose from a large variety of analytes and pick from several price categories that suit your laboratory’s needs.
