The purpose of intercomparisons is to assess the performance of laboratories on how they conduct their tests. Many laboratories work in isolation with the risk that laboratory data may have errors, bias or significant differences compared to similar laboratories.
Aptitude tests provide an opportunity to make such comparisons and to have an independent assessment of laboratory data compared with reference values (or other performance criteria) or with the performance of similar laboratories.
The results of such participation provide laboratories with confirmation that the laboratory’s performance is satisfactory or an alert that an investigation of potential problems within the laboratory is required.
