With the intention of knowing the current situation of the Brazilian laboratories to promote reliable information to the authorities and claims for the sector, the PNCQ launched the CLINICAL LABORATORIES Research.
The information received will be treated as confidential and the disclosure will be made in the form of statistical reports that serve to propose actions to revert problems and, through Accreditation, increase technical competence of participating laboratories for the safety of their clients.
In contrast, the PNCQ seeks to reward participating laboratories for their collaboration. This year, 10 registrations to the 46th Brazilian Congress of Clinical Analyses – the CBAC 2019 – to be held in Belo Horizonte, were raffled. Indalab (SC), BioExame, São José and Vitório Análises Clínicas (MG), Diagnóstico da Bahia (BA), Diagnose and Santa Mônica (PR), Musial (RO), Laboratório CITCLIN (RJ) and RB Diagnósticos (AM) won the prizes.
On behalf of the PNCQ, the Superintendent Dr. Francisco Pacifici Guimarães thanks everyone who responded to the survey. The collaboration of participating laboratories is very important for the constant improvement of the products and services of Brazil's largest Proficiency Testing Provider.
