Web-Based System for EQA / PT Organisers

  Overview of EQAlite

If you need a system to manage your proficiency testing (PT) schemes but you do not need many of the functions in our main EQA Programme Manager system , then EQAlite is for you.

At its simplest, EQAlite offers you a web-based system that allows you maintain the details of your participating laboratories, the schemes you run and the individual distributions or rounds that you issue. It also provides your participating laboratories with a website where they can enter their results and view the final round report.   

We can tailor the round reports to use whichever statistical analysis method you choose, z-scores, robust z-scores etc (including ISO 13528, ISO 5725:2, ISO 5725:3 etc), in fact the whole system can be tailored to meet your precise requirements. We can, for example, allow you to maintain units, methods and machines used by participants for further analysis, participants would select the method used when they enter their results. We can also add standard website features such as a page with your contact details, a page about you, news items, registration details, scheme handbooks etc.

Read how one client has used their version of EQAlite to streamline the results, statistics and reporting process, saving time to expand their EQA scheme. Bulletin of The Royal College of Pathologists - January 2014
