The IQMH office is closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We have moved to a virtual office. More info: IQMH Response to COVID-19.
You may experience service interruption to IQMH.org to Thursday, June 4, 2020 due to a major website migration project.
The service interruption may occur late in the afternoon on June 4 and is not expected to last longer than an hour.
Please make appropriate work-related arrangements in order to accommodate this service interruption.
On behalf of all of us at IQMH, we would like to offer our thanks to our laboratory colleagues during this difficult COVID-19 pandemic.
In recognition of National Volunteer Week, we would like to thank all the dedicated laboratory professionals who generously donate their time and expertise. We have many volunteers to thank: Scientific Committee members, Accreditation Assessors, and Slide Assessors.
IQMH is proud to be part of the medical laboratory community! It’s important to us to share this pride by supporting National Medical Laboratory Week, an event sponsored by the Canadian Society of Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) since 1985.
CLSI recognizes the important contributions of laboratory professionals and the health care community and applauds their efforts in the global fight against COVID-19. CLSI has compiled a list of documents useful for laboratory testing during the current pandemic.
To defeat COVID-19 everyone has to do their part. Accreditation Canada, Health Standards Organization Institute for Quality Management in Healthcare and our partners have released a suite of resources to support health care and social service workers and their organizations.
IQMH is in the process of moving to a completely virtual office. Since March 16, 2020, the majority of staff have been working from home connected to our server and applications through a secure VPN.

Recent years have seen a significant increase in the number of cases of biotin interference with streptavidin-biotin (SB)-based immunoassays reported in the literature. Biotin interference with laboratory tests, specifically SB-based immunoassays, is potentially dangerous, as it may cause spurious test results leading to misdiagnosis and patient mismanagement.
