The Tackler Analytical Proficiency Testing Scheme for Urine (TAPTS-Urine) is specifically designed for the proficiency testing of the detection of drugs of abuse in urine using POCT devices. The scheme consists of four urine samples dispatched each quarter which may or may not contain drugs or metabolites at 20% above the cut off level stated for the device. There is a web based reporting system that is used to distribute the results quickly to the end user.
The scheme currently has over 130 participants.
If you are interested in joining the scheme the please contact us for details as to when the next distribution is due to go out.
