Performance of in vitro devices against the Proficiency Testing, it’s the theme in a Workshop at the 2nd SBPC/ML Virtual Congress


A workshop promoted by Controllab will allow participants in the activity to access information that contributes to better decisions in their analytical processes

On September 9, at the 2nd Virtual Congress of the Brazilian Society of Clinical Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (SBPC/ML), Controllab will promote the Workshop “Performance of in vitro devices against the Proficiency Testing”. The activity is part of the congress program, which addresses the central theme “Digital Transformation: trends and challenges in laboratory medicine”, where data are highlighted as guidelines for decisions on laboratory routines.

At the Workshop, Rafael Lopes, Service Manager at Controllab, will discuss data from the analytical systems observed in the interlaboratory comparison. “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.

Additionally, a study on control materials that demonstrate the importance of quality tools to identify variation between batches of reagents will be demonstrated.

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.

During the exhibition of the Workshop, Rafael Lopes will interact with the participants to exchange experiences and answer questions or other questions related to the content.

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.

PEP 0003

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Control Laboratory

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.
