PRO-LAB® laboratories are AIHA Accredited and participate in the EMPAT Program (Environmental Microbiology Proficiency Analytical Testing), AIHA EMPAT #163230. This program has been developed for microbiology laboratories specializing in the analysis of microorganisms commonly detected in air, fluids and bulk samples. This program serves as an external quality control to measure our laboratory’s accuracy and to verify the performance of our lab is in line with other labs performing the same analysis. Several times during the year, “blind” samples are sent to our lab to be analyzed and returned to the proficiency testing provider. These results are then compared to other laboratories using the same testing method and a “report card” is issued to our lab. Regular participation in the proficiency program builds a picture over time that can help our quality control managers, accreditation bodies and our customers to get a picture of our laboratories analytical quality.
