We obtain our proficiency samples from CAP (College of American Pathology).
The CAP Survey is the largest laboratory peer comparison program in the world. The program allow laboratories to regularly evaluate their performance and improve the accuracy of the patient results they provide. Through this program, the CAP provides individual laboratories with unknown specimens for testing. The participants analyze the specimens and return the results to the CAP for evaluation. In turn, each participating laboratory receives a report of their performance as well as a report summarizing the results of all participating laboratories.
