Custom Designed Proficiency Testing Programs
A group of laboratories or staff within a company with a particular proficiency testing need can approach us about designing a custom program for their use. IFM already has on hand a wide variety of products that could be combined to produce a program exactly fitting the needs and budget of many laboratories.
Reference Materials and Quality Control Materials
A range of homogenous samples with known analytical results are on-hand for use in validation work and for other quality assurance purposes. The range of products also includes traceable reference cultures.
Quality Assurance Consulting Services
Laboratory quality assurance is our speciality. On occasion it can be difficult for laboratories to discern reasons for inconsistent performance. IFM offers a range of services aimed at improving quality assurance within your laboratory. This consulting service is offered either on your premises or IFM's, and can also be as simple as an informal chat.
Audits to ISO/IEC17025 (second party)
Internal auditing is a requirement of ISO/IEC 17025. Many organizations find having an annual second party audit a very worthwhile exercise, especially prior to a formal assessment. Depending on your requirements, we can perform a quality system documentation review, assessment of laboratory practice, or both.
Laboratory skills training
IFM can provide laboratory skills training in Microbiology. We can conduct training at IFM premises or on-site. We can provide group training or individual training. Our training programs include formal evaluation of performance after training at the completion of the program. Such training is customised to the needs of the client, and can be simply practical, or include documentation and be examinable.
Contract Freeze Drying
IFM can provide contract freeze drying services for many applications, such as bacterial culture production, preservation of various chemical solutions, drying of natural or artificial samples. Contact us to determine the manner in which we can assist you.
Contract test work
On occasion, verification testing can be an important supplement to your normal testing regime. Sometimes the laboratory workload is unusually busy. IFM is accredited to ISO/IEC17025 for biological testing and can assist with casual or contract testing arrangements.
Packaging and dispatch of infectious items
The shipment and carriage of dangerous or infectious items has become increasingly difficult in the past years. The shipment of class 6.2 organisms requires authorisation from registered persons and handling in approved packaging. IFM has qualified staff who have extensive knowledge and experience in packaging and despatching such items. We can ship domestically or internationally and can save you time effort and stress.
