The RIQAS Urinalysis EQA Program is a comprehensive program designed to monitor the performance of both manual and automated urine dipstick tests. Urine dipstick tests are often performed in point of care situations (POC), an area which is often less regulated than the core laboratory, increasing the need for external quality assessment.
All samples are liquid ready to use for added convenience and are provided at the beginning of cycle. Results are submitted on a bi-monthly basis with sophisticated yet easy to interpret reports provided within 24-48 hours to enable any corrective actions to be taken as soon as possible. Our extensive analyte menu allows for increased consolidation and cost savings.
Full List of Parameters: Albumin, Bilirubin, Blood, Creatinine, Galactose, Glucose, hCG, Ketones, Leukocytes, Nitrite, pH, Protein, Specific Gravity, and Urobilinogen.
RIQAS is the largest international EQA scheme in the world with over 22,000 participants in more than 100 countries.
