Educac - Basic Continuous Education.

Questionnaire with 10 multiple choice questions about the different specialities of the clinical laboratory.

Basic Spectrophotometry:


Evaluation of the spectrophotometers and  photocolorimeters performance. Optional to users who don’t have spectrophotometers and photocolorimeters in their laboratories. 


Observation: The control samples of this program are sent monthly to the Participating Laboratories, and, the returns with the results must be at least 11 per year, in order the yearly evaluation and the certification of the quality performance may be carried out, with the issue of  participation certificates.
