Since 1988, the CAP has been offering a comprehensive menu of Calibration
Verification/Linearity Surveys (CVL) designed for laboratories to satisfy the
requirements for scheduled calibration verification and verification of the
analytical measurement range (AMR) as specified in the CAP Laboratory Accreditation
Program and Current CLIA Regulations Section 493.1255 for most analytes.
Our CVL Surveys provide the most comprehensive menu of analytes and methods that cover broad ranges from near zero to the top of the AMR. Customized reports are provided with an Executive Summary for a quick overview of performance, a detailed evaluation with specific analyte information, and calibration verification/linearity graphs.
For more information on the CVL Surveys, including target ranges, refer to the Instrumentation Validation Tools section of the 2012 Surveys Catalog.
LN Express is an expedited delivery system for CVL evaluation results that is offered with selected CVL Surveys. By logging into e-LAB Solutions™ you can receive your linearity results within two business days of submission.
The User’s Guide is a convenient easy-to-use tool to assist you in achieving your quality management goals as well as meeting regulatory requirements. This guide includes a basic overview of your calibration verification/linearity evaluations, how to interpret your results, and a troubleshooting and suggested actions section. It is free with enrollment in the CVL Surveys program.
