Weqas launches pilot EQA Programme for Quantitative FIT

Weqas have been offering a FOB and FIT Qualitative Programme since July 2014 and successfully gained ISO 17043 accreditation in February 2016.  Following on from this success, Weqas has developed the programme further and will be offering a Quantitative FIT Programme free of charge to UK customers (postage may be charged to overseas customers), during quarter four 2016.

The base material is organic material which closely mirrors the basic constituents of human faeces. This material is then spiked with Hb to cover the pathological and analytical range for Faecal Immunochemical tests (FIT).  Three concentration levels will be sent out monthly during the first 6 months of the pilot phase.









If you would like to join the pilot Programme, please let us know contacting:
