Peer Reporting

A powerful tool for evaluating analytical performance

The Unity Interlaboratory Peer Program provides customers a cost-effective opportunity to optimize their analytical performance by utilizing QC data generated from thousands of laboratories worldwide. Unity is the world’s largest and most robust QC lab peer program for clinical labs with more than 29,000 participating labs actively reporting on over 53,000 instruments, resulting in more than 17 million QC results processed every month. Unity peer reports are designed to give laboratories the opportunity to compare and improve their analytical performance, helping increase confidence in their results.

Key benefits of peer reporting program

Large peer groups help provide confidence in the reliability of your test results

Peer group comparisons help identify trends or shifts earlier

Participation in an interlaboratory program helps your lab meet quality requirements

Electronic data submission helps streamline workflow

Comparison reports allow for real-time troubleshooting

Online reports help improve workflow efficiency

QC data submission calendar

To participate in our monthly program, your lab should submit its data each month on or before the end of the first week of the month (the specific due date is the seventh day of the month). In doing so, this data will be included in the generated peer reports, which you will have access to by the middle of the month.
