PT Take-away: Are you getting the most out of your proficiency testing programs?

By Editor on 7/27/2015

Proficiency testing is the act of determining laboratory performance (i.e., assessment of standards of performance) by means of inter-laboratory comparison. PT for medical laboratories has a rich and august history:

  • The first PT survey was undertaken in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 19461,
  • PT was organized in Canada by Tonks and Allen from 1952 to 19542, and
  • The Laboratory Proficiency Testing Program (LPTP), a department of the Ontario Medical Association (OMA), was formed in 1974.
