Those interested in participating in the pilot round, structured according to the criteria of ISO/IEC 17043, can sign up for participation until June 18

As technology advances, sequencing tests have become more accessible and popular in preventive medicine. However, like other laboratory tests, they need monitoring to ensure the accuracy of the results.

The techniques of these exams are in constant evolution and participating in a Proficiency Testing (PT), also known as External Quality Control, helps the laboratory in the implementation and monitoring of technical quality and inputs applied in carrying out these exams.

To assist in this scenario, Controllab will launch the following PT, at the end of June:



Ancestry Genetic TestIdentification and mapping of continents and populations of origin
Sequencing: Neonatal ScreeningComplete sequencing for identification of disorders and diseases in the newborn
Sequencing: Bacterial Genome DetectionFull or partial sequencing
Sequencing: Detection of Fungal and Yeast GenomeFull or partial sequencing

By participating in these PT, laboratories will be able to demonstrate to physicians and patients the reliability of their reports, as well as the effectiveness of the procedures and steps involved in the analyses.

The round was structured according to ISO/IEC 17043 criteria and the reports issued after the assessment facilitate recognition for accreditation processes and regulatory bodies.

Those interested in participating in these pilot rounds, scheduled to be sent free of charge on June 28th, canindicate

to participate in this link until the 18th of this month.

PRM 0009

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Certified Reference Material Producer

Controllab has been accredited as a Certified Reference Material Producer (MRC) since 2016 by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE), under the PMR 0009 number. The assessment of this conformity is carried out according to the requirements established in ABNT NBR standards ISO 17034 and Inmetro, thus ensuring competence for the production of MRCs, according to the Scope of Accreditation.

CAL 0214

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Calibration Laboratory

In December 2002, the Calibration Laboratory was accredited by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE). With this recognition, it became an integral part of the Brazilian network of accredited laboratories, under nº214. Since then, it is periodically evaluated for the maintenance and/or extension of accreditation.

Cgcre is signatory to the Mutual Recognition Arrangements of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and Interamerican Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC).

PEP 0003

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Proficiency Test Provider

In September 2011, Controllab was accredited by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE) as a proficiency test provider, under nº PEP0003. Initially as part of a pilot project by Inmetro, this accreditation was based on ILAC G13: 2007 and included several clinical and hemotherapy tests. In the periodic evaluations of this accreditation, new segments and tests are included and the evaluation is now conducted according to ABNT NBR ISO/IEC 17043.

This accreditation attests to Controllab’s technical competence to develop and conduct proficiency tests in accordance with international requirements and enables it to be recognized in other countries, in accordance with mutual recognition agreements signed by Brazil in Mercosur, the Americas and Europe.
