The RDTs/Point of Care (POC), as well as the other methodologies, require qualified management that allows to guarantee the safety of the results released by these analytical systems.

The program consists of multiple items, in which the evaluation will be made available in an individual results report with a concept and another report with a general profile of the performance of the reported kits. The profile contributes to assertive decisions about the systems adopted in the routine.

The pilot round will be sent with five items from different donors and was structured according to the guidelines of ISO/IEC 17043. More details on the benefits that the laboratory will obtain from participating in this Proficiency Testing, can be obtained on the service page.
