Covid-19: increase in cases and incidence of other respiratory diseases intensify analytical routines
The increasing number of positive SARS-CoV2 cases requires greater attention for a correct diagnosis and distinction from other viruses in circulation In Brazil, data from Fiocruz indicate a increase in the national curve of positive cases for Covid-19 and other respiratory diseases. The correct identification of Covid-19 cases and their distinction from other viruses is fundamental for adequate clinical management and public policy guidance. The exam routines play a leading role in this scenario, informing the data from the issuance of their reports. The increase in demand for these tests requires greater attention in the laboratory network, so that there is adequate identification and to know which viruses are most associated with the change in trend. For the reliability of the reports, Controllab offers a wide portfolio of Quality Control (QC). Among the solutions, the QC includes external and internal controls and reference material. These solutions avoid errors in the analytical phase and costs in repetitions. The preventive actions provided by quality tools are more efficient than corrective actions, as they avoid waste of inputs, optimize human labor and make analyzes more productive and reliable.

PRM 0009

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Certified Reference Material Producer

Controllab has been accredited as a Certified Reference Material Producer (MRC) since 2016 by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE), under the PMR 0009 number. The assessment of this conformity is carried out according to the requirements established in ABNT NBR standards ISO 17034 and Inmetro, thus ensuring competence for the production of MRCs, according to the Scope of Accreditation.
Cgcre is signatory to the Mutual Recognition Arrangements of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and Interamerican Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC).

CAL 0214

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Calibration Laboratory

In December 2002, the Calibration Laboratory was accredited by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE). With this recognition, it became an integral part of the Brazilian network of accredited laboratories, under nº214. Since then, it is periodically evaluated for the maintenance and/or extension of accreditation.

Cgcre is signatory to the Mutual Recognition Arrangements of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and Interamerican Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC).

PEP 0003

Accreditation Cgcre/Inmetro - Proficiency Test Provider

In September 2011, Controllab was accredited by Inmetro’s General Coordination for Accreditation (CGCRE) as a proficiency test provider, under nº PEP0003. Initially as part of a pilot project by Inmetro, this accreditation was based on ILAC G13: 2007 and included several clinical and hemotherapy tests. In the periodic evaluations of this accreditation, new segments and tests are included and the evaluation is now conducted according to ABNT NBR ISO/IEC 17043.

This accreditation attests to Controllab’s technical competence to develop and conduct proficiency tests in accordance with international requirements and enables it to be recognized in other countries, in accordance with mutual recognition agreements signed by Brazil in Mercosur, the Americas and Europe.
