The Department of Haematology, Christian Medical College, Vellore provides external quality assurance (EQA) for laboratories performing molecular tests for haematological disorders. We are committed to providing a cost effective and efficient service to participants.
Participation in this program is purely voluntary and through registration on the website. The EQA program currently consists of two surveys per year and all the modules are covered in both the surveys. The EQA samples are to be treated like patient samples and must be done by the personnel who normally does the test. The survey results will be uploaded after each survey and will be sent by email. The participating labs will be provided with an enrolment certificate after enrolment in the program and a participation certificate at the end of the year.
