UK NEQAS Roadshow 19/03/2019

We will be explaining the mechanics of the Schemes, including how the statistics are calculated and how to interpret your reports to assist you in troubleshooting.

We will showcase some of the added value extras that the Schemes provide; we are not just a numbers-only service.

We want to give you the chance to ask questions from us on any topic, but perhaps with particular emphasis on how we can assist you in your day job and how to help you with the demands of ISO15189.

2019 Randox QC Academy 21/03

21/03/2019
This will be the first time Randox have held a Quality Control dedicated workshop. We have plenty of experience in hosting these seminars as every year we host our annual RIQAS User Forum.

These seminars will be somewhat similar to the RIQAS User Forums – the major difference will be in the content. For these seminars, the focus will mainly be on quality control in the laboratory rather than EQA. Some of the topics we plan to speak about include the benefit to laboratories of running true third party, commutable controls. Our new molecular infectious disease testing range, interlaboratory data management software – the benefits of this and how it can help streamline laboratory procedures and much more.
