Welcome to Bika Proficiency Testing
The PT Advantage
Regular independent assessment of a laboratory's technical performance is necessary to assure the validity of measurements as part of an overall quality strategy.
PT schemes provide external evaluation of lab performance through comparison with their peers, valued for the objective evidence provided on the competence of participants. It is used to improve performance and confidence in the ability to perform routine measurements and enables labs to learn from their participation and improve the quality of their services.
