The use of PT by a laboratory is extremely important part of implementing a reliable quality assurance system. The basic use is to assess the performance of a laboratory to undertake a specific measurement or calibration providing confirmation that the laboratory’s performance is satisfactory or to indicate where potential problems need addressing.
However there are many additional benefits to a laboratory participating in a PT scheme, covering the ability to monitor the performance of a laboratory as a whole, individual members of staff and specific methods.
There is a significant volume of information generated by a PT scheme and this can be used to help laboratories to improve their quality and make informed choices about methods of analysis, equipment etc, which you'll learn in greater detail in this comprehensive webinar series.
