Clinical proficiency testing (PT) schemes

LGC Standard’s clinical proficiency testing schemes, or external quality assessment schemes as they are often referred as, deal principally in the area of drug monitoring, whether they are deliberately administered drugs for therapeutic purposes; toxic drugs deliberately or accidentally ingested which could cause harm; or drugs of abuse which may be analysed for clinically significant levels, or for workplace monitoring.

Due to the importance of results obtained, it is essential that laboratories are able to demonstrate their testing is dependable, reproducible and accurate; otherwise mistakes can have a major impact on patient care, legal and forensic investigations, occupational monitoring, insurance screening and more.

Participation in LGC Standards clinical schemes will provide valuable feedback to laboratories/on-site screening clinics who undertake these analyses, and enable them to demonstrate their performance over time using the trend reports available through our PORTAL system.
