Controllab discusses systems performance in a Workshop at the 2nd SBPC/ML Virtual Congress

With the theme “Performance of in vitro devices against the Proficiency Testing”, the company will promote a workshop comparing the performance of systems, including international data

Addressing the central theme “Digital Transformation: trends and challenges in laboratory medicine”, where data are highlighted as guidelines for decisions on laboratory routines, the 2nd Virtual Congress of the Brazilian Society of Clinical Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (SBPC/ML) will be held between September 7th and 11th and will have the participation of Controllab.

After contributions in pre-congress courses and scientific grid (round table), Controllab participates on September 9 in another event at the event, with Services manager Rafael Lopes at the Workshop on “Performance of in vitro devices against the Proficiency Testing”.

“The behavior of devices, including system modalities, methodologies, technology and other external and internal impacts on the use of these devices show a variation in data that, if transported to medical decisions, based on this performance, raises some questions that both manufacturers and users must observe”, informs Rafael Lopes.

“In some tests, the dispersion of results between the devices and their respective batches generated questions that were studied in the quality control materials. The results showed how the external and internal control tools are essential for the laboratories and sharing this discussion with the diagnostic sector will be enriching for the continuous improvement of the analytical routine”, concludes Rafael.

The presentation contains graphs that didactically illustrate the behavior of the results, accompanied by coefficients of variation, percentages of adequacy and discussions of defects per million opportunities (DPMO), when appropriate.

The activity will take place on September 9th (Thursday), starting at 3pm, in room 01. The workshop will last 30 minutes and will contribute to the evolution of the analytical processes.

This workshop integrates the activities of the congress. To participate, register on this link.

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.
