New EQA Programmes
For 2024-2025, we have made changes to the Cardiac Marker Programmes in order to separate High Sensitivity Troponin and POCT Cardiac Marker assays. The new programmes are ‘hsTroponin’ and ‘POCT Cardiac’. For those participants currently registered on either the Serum Cardiac Marker or Plasma Cardiac Marker Programme we will transfer your registration to the appropriate new programme from April 2024. The changes will be shown on your personalised Renewal quote.

Participant and sample costs explained
Programme / Participant cost is the full year’s registration cost (including shipping one set of samples per distribution to one postal address within mainland UK). You can add multiple instruments per sample set if the sample can be appropriately shared between instruments. If you require any additional sets of samples sent to the same postal address, the cost for this is included under “Extra sample set costs”.

If you require an additional set of samples to be sent to a different postal address then you will need to pay an additional participant charge. For programmes on Weqas Connect a new participant code will be generated for each address.

The current number of instruments/sections registered per programme for your organisation can be viewed on the EQA portal appropriate for those programmes. To ensure that you have continuity of service, we will provide you with the same number of programmes and samples as your current order until advised accordingly.

Current Participants
For current participants, a personalised quotation (Renewal Form) based on your previous year’s enrolment was dispatched during March 2024. We have tried to maintain or minimise the increase in charges to within the rate of inflation for the majority of programmes, however, we have had to make the difficult choice of increasing charges for a small number of programmes to cover the substantial increase in costs of raw materials experienced this year.
Due to the continued decline in participant numbers, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue Whole Blood Immunosuppressants, BNP, SARS-CoV-2 Antibody and Qualitative Faecal Hb from the 1st April 2024.
Participant and Laboratory Codes explained
Weqas are continuing to migrate our programmes from the old platforms, Weqas Interactive and Cuesee, to our new platform, Weqas Connect. During the transition period, both old and new codes (if appropriate) will be displayed on your customised Renewal Form. We added an Enrolment Account number to the Renewal Forms which is used for billing purposes and should only be used when contacting our Finance Department, please don’t quote this in relation to any other communication.
We will continue to provide a discount for multiple registrations in our Blood Gas and Co-oximetry programmes. We also have an option for bimonthly blood gases and co-oximetry for low volume sites. The HIL Serum Indices programme is available as a standalone monthly programme with a bi annual interference programme being offered free of charge as part of the Serum Chemistry programme.
Additional discount is also available for organisations wishing to enrol for three or more years.
Additional services
We offer a wealth of additional services, including Managed Service for EQA programmes, troubleshooting advice, IQC products, Reference Measurement Services, QCRM and Educational & Training services. Please visit to download our brochure.
