As part of our 2012 proficiency testing (PT) programme, Vet Food Agro Diagnostics (M) Sdn Bhd has participated in PT organized by GD Deventer, Netherlands, for Infectious Bronchitis Virus (IBV). We passed the PT and correctly identified all eight freeze-dried serum samples using our accredited method. The z-score values we obtained for all eight samples range from -1.13 to 0.58, which fall within the acceptable range of ±2.0 (95% confidence level).
In total, 69 different laboratories from 32 countries from all over the world participated in this PT. The goal of this PT was to determine the performance of individual laboratories for the specific tests. With these PT results, we have once again shown that our serology test results are reliable and our customers can have full confidence in our results.
