Also we gave two lectures on new approaches in the field of proficiency testing in October 2017. One of them at the PT Conf in Romania, and the other at the Eurachem PT Workshop in Slovenia.

 

Our presentations attracted wide interest, and we want to share them with everyone who had not the chance to attend.

 

Webinar 5:

Precision profiles and z score profiles

 

About: A QuoData initiated proficiency testing scheme. Within the proficiency test new approaches have been utilized to provide more reliable information on the performance of laboratories with the help z score profiles. This webinar is related to our contribution at the PT Conf 2017, in Romania.
