Company has developed new services to help laboratories gain additional value from their participation in proficiency testing (PT) programs.
Analytical Products Group (APG) has developed new services to help laboratories gain additional value from their participation in proficiency testing (PT) programmes.
This range of services is called Advantage.
The Advantage reporting tool is said to be the PT industry's first comprehensive, online performance review system.
The Advantage reporting tool enables laboratories to track, trend, and improve the quality and defensibility of their analytical data.
For each APG study in which a customer has participated since 1999, Advantage securely presents performance results in two major categories - accreditation management, and quality improvement.
Advantage includes tabular and graphical representations of proficiency testing results.
All study results, even quick-turnaround sample results, are available online with Advantage.
The system is free to all APG customers.
The Advantage training verification tool provides laboratories with training samples customised to their standard operating procedures (SOP).
This is an interactive, online reporting system that provides an easy way to monitor and document the demonstration of Nelac performance training requirements.
Advantage training verification tool generates a training certificate and tracks continuing training requirements to relieve laboratories of this burden.
It is described as an affordable system that helps train employees and ensures that laboratories continue to produce the best data.
