Monitor the Quality of your Lab’s Test Results
Join the IQLS EQA Program on TB

Dear Laboratory Manager,

As an active stakeholder within the International TB laboratory network, we wanted to share with you an exciting opportunity on how your laboratory can improve its Tuberculosis (TB) laboratory performance by participating in the IQLS Proficiency Testing (EQA) Programs on Tuberculosis.

Two Programs are Available

  • ITBC Program (IQLS Tuberculosis Culture): Microscopy/Identification/DST – 10 prepared slides and 10 simulated sputum specimens, 2x per year. (price sheet)
  • ITBM Program (IQLS Tuberculosis Molecular): Molecular Identification – 7 inactivated specimens for use in GeneXpert or LPA, 2x per year. (price sheet)

Data entry is managed through a secure online interface, and we always provide help and support to laboratories facing diagnosis problems. Click HERE for more about EQA.

IQLS is an international laboratory services consulting firm that has provided proficiency testing programs for more than 6 years (tuberculosis, malaria, arboviruses). As the EQA Program Coordinator at IQLS, I'm your personal point of contact to answer any questions you may have about the ITBC/ITBM programs.

The enrollment deadline is 28 February 2017 , and the next survey is planned for May/June 2017. We would be delighted if your laboratory participated!
