The Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) Proficiency Testing (PEP) Program is the diagnosis of Equine Infectious Anemia in equine, donkey or mule serum samples.
Participants may choose to perform the Assay using the techniques: ELISA and / or IDGA, where through the samples will be performed a qualitative identification (positive or negative). The participant must act according to his / her practical routines, following the specific Ordinance for the IEA essay.
Qualabor's activities as a proficiency test provider are performed impartially, structured and managed to ensure this feature. Qualabor guarantees that the identity of the participants of each program is confidential and only known to those involved in its operation. Qualabor also warrants that all information provided by participants will be treated as confidential.
Qualabor will use the Direct Comparison with the reference value and this value is already known to the samples and confirmed by an accredited laboratory.

Qualabor's QMS is implemented and effectively maintained according ISO/IEC 17043.
EPTIS helps you find a suitable proficiency testing (PT) scheme for your laboratory (a PT scheme is a coherent series of single rounds). For a large number of schemes we have produced data sheets and collected them in the EPTIS database. What is not included in the database is topical information on next PT rounds. When is the next round, and what is the matrix material this time? This information is too dynamic as to be included in the database. But you can find such details for a selection of schemes in our PT calendar.
At present, a listing on the database is only open to PT providers from countries that are covered by our so-called coordinators. They check the plausibility of the data sheet submissions and decide on their publication. They speak the language and are ideally familiar with local PT providers and cultural peculiarities. This helps to safeguard a reasonable level of database quality. There is no cost for PT providers who follow this basic mechanism.
