Instrumentation, reagents and people can all make errors. A good quality assurance program, is designed to detect and correct errors as soon as possible.
The Veterinary Laboratory Association (VLA) Quality Assurance Program is an external proficiency program specifically designed for veterinary laboratories. We receive sample specimens for our laboratory to analyze and return to the VLA where the data is statistically analyzed and a customized report is returned to us using both graphical and numerical data.
The VLA quality assurance program is a valuable supplement to our own internal quality assurance program.
