EQA results can only be submitted online! General remarks on the INSTAND EQA schemes in virus diagnostics: Please note that the samples of the respective EQA schemes are suitable to be analyzed by different methods for the detection of the corresponding analyte. Example: EQA scheme “Virus immunology - HIV-1 / HIV-2“ - The 4 samples of the sample set of the EQA scheme (335) can be analyzed on virus specific antibodies by different methods such as ELISA, ChLIA and other methods. The results of the respective method should be stated for all 4 samples of the sample set. The results reported for the different methods will be displayed in the participation documents (Individual results).
