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.
