Proficiency Testing at LGC

Proficiency Testing (PT) is a key element in any laboratory's quality toolkit. It enables labs to monitor their performance compared with others in the same industry, testing the same or similar products and using similar methods. This is true of any laboratory, but the ability to monitor the performance of multiple labs, all taking part in a PT round at the same time, means an organisation can keep control of its quality and direct valuable resource to where it is needed most. LGC can provide group reports and data exports for our ISO/IEC 17043 accredited open schemes, but we can also provide tailored programmes specifically for large groups of laboratories. LGC can help you meet your quality and compliance standards with our products. As well as supplying PT programmes to some of the world’s largest food and beverage companies, we also supply reference materials to the food, environment, life sciences, pharmaceuticals and drug testing industries.
