Controllab launches more controls for sequencing tests

Sequencing

Estruturada conforme os critérios da ISO/IEC 17043, a rodada piloto está prevista para novembro e contemplará Ensaio de Proficiência para mapear o genoma viral de diferentes vírus e Coronavírus (SARS-CoV2)

Os testes de sequenciamento têm se tornado mais acessíveis e populares conforme o avanço da tecnologia. No entanto, assim como os demais exames realizados em laboratório, eles precisam de monitoramento para garantir a exatidão dos resultados.

Em junho, a Controllab lançou os primeiros controles para testes de sequenciamento e agora expande a área com os controles externos específicos para sequenciamento do Coronavírus (SARS-CoV2) e sequenciamento para Genoma Viral, que contemplará diferentes vírus, incluindo respiratórios, oncogênicos e arboviroses.

Para Covid-19, devido às mutações, a vigilância genômica se tornou uma aliada no enfretamento da doença. Laudos precisos são essenciais para detectar suas variantes, estabelecer por onde ele passou, discutir programas de ação e atualizar vacinas.

O Ensaio de Proficiência (EP) ou Controle Externo da Qualidade auxilia o laboratório na implantação e acompanhamento da qualidade técnica e insumos aplicados na realização dos testes de sequenciamento.

Ao participar destes EPs, os laboratórios poderão evidenciar aos médicos e pacientes a confiabilidade dos seus laudos, assim como a eficácia dos procedimentos e das etapas envolvidas nas análises.

A rodada foi estruturada conforme os critérios da ISO/IEC 17043 e os relatórios emitidos após a avaliação facilitam o reconhecimento para os processos de acreditação e órgãos regulamentadores.

Previstas para serem enviadas sem custos em novembro, os interessados nesses controles devem assinalar a participação neste link até o dia 08 do próximo mês.

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

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.

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.
