New EQA scheme for Pipette control

We have announced a new EQA scheme for controlling and monitoring single-channel piston-operated mechanical and electronic pipettes used in clinical laboratories.

This EQA scheme allows clinical laboratories to perform intermediate performance checks between pipette calibration intervals, including interlaboratory comparison and individual performance assessments against reference measurement values. The EQA samples provided in this scheme are noninfectious liquid samples. Participating laboratories are requested to perform multiple pipetting of a specific volume (100-1000 µL) and report the obtained mass weight for each measurement (a laboratory scale with 0.01 mg resolution is needed). Each laboratory may report results for up to 5 pipettes through the electronic platform LabScala. Result evaluations will be published in the final report distributed to the participants.

Note: This EQA scheme does not fulfill the accreditation requirements for pipette calibration and is not intended to replace standardized pipette calibration. Pipette calibration can be performed by ISO 17025-accredited calibration facilities or internally by clinical laboratories when following the specified requirements.

Preanalytical EQA scheme for pneumatic sample transport

Does your pneumatic tube system (PTS) induce hemolysis? Is this preanalytical step included in your quality control process? You can monitor your PTS regularly by participating in our EQA scheme.
