What does Qualitycheck offer?
The Qualitycheck Srls is an Italian private and independent company, founded with the aim of providing testing laboratories with the tools for quality control, such as interlaboratory proficiency testing, reference materials, technical support to improve analytical performance, and other services related to internal control and external quality assurance of analytical results.
The mission of Qualitycheck is to simplify the use of the tools of quality control to enable testing laboratories to improve their analytical performance.
In recent years, the increase of quality standards imposed by reference standards and legislation led to greater confidence in the analytical results generated by testing laboratories. At the same time, however, it has resulted in the need for laboratories to allocate resources, financial and human, more and more increasing for managing quality controls.
For these reasons, Qualitycheck offers simple tools for quality control, fast and effective execution, allowing its clients to optimize time and resources to improve their performance.
