Therapeutic Drugs-Antibiotics (ANTIBIOTICS)

daps UKAS Logo
  • UKAS accredited proficiency testing scheme
  • The LGC Therapeutic Drugs Monitoring (TDM) proficiency testing scheme provides independent performance assessment for the routine quantification of a wide range of anti-epileptic and other therapeutic drugs.
  • Antibiotic drugs (these analytes are produced in collaboration with the UKNEQAS for antibiotics drugs)
  • TDM is a measurement of specific drug concentration levels at timed intervals in patients, usually through blood/serum samples, and is necessary where control of drug concentrations is required to achieve optimum treatment for the patient, or where there is a narrow range between the therapeutic and toxic levels.
  • The operation of the LGC TDM scheme is supported by an Advisory Group consisting of members of the professional bodies, scheme participants, and others experienced in the field. The scheme reports on the performance of U.K. participants (who have clinical responsibilities) to the National Quality Assurance Advisory Panels for Chemical Pathology.
  • Scheme operates from January to December
