CompaLab QCRM

What is a CompaLab QCRM?

Our QCRMs do more than simply meet requirement 7.7.1 of ISO/IEC 17025.

Thanks to the PTs (proficiency testing comparisons) it organises, CompaLab has access to samples whose characteristics are known with precision ( mean values, repeatability and reproducibility standard deviations).

Using CompaLab QCRM means you can constantly monitor whether :

  • Laboratory bias remains under control;
  • A drift in the test results appears;
  • The laboratory's repeatability remains under control;
  • The uncertainty determined by the laboratory remains consistent with its test results.

CompaLab QCRMs are optimised

  • Thanks to the use of PT results, the alert limits are much more reliable than those of a traditional QCRM: no risk of false alerts or undetected alerts;
  • All CompaLab's technical and statistical experience has been used to determine the control charts best suited to monitoring test processes;
  • The test results collected are also used to provide other useful information for the laboratory (influence of different equipment and operators on the quality of test results).
  • They can be used to qualify an operator or a piece of test equipment.

CompaLab QCRMs save you a lot of study and implementation work

CompaLab QCRMs are made up of:

  • A set of samples with known characteristics (property values, repeatability and reproducibility standard deviations);
  • An Excel file that generates control charts and other calculations useful for monitoring test quality;
  • An explanatory note to help you understand the meaning of the calculations made and easily interpret the results obtained.
