CAP Begins Monitoring of Proficiency Testing Performance of Vitamin D

Beginning in 2012, CAP-accredited laboratories performing Vitamin D, 25-hydroxy on patient samples are required to enroll, participate and maintain successful performance in the BGS Survey (or other CAP-accepted PT). The CAP’s Laboratory Accreditation Program will monitor BGS proficiency testing performance. One or more of the following activities is being performed by your laboratory according to our records:

  • 2305 Vitamin D, 25-hydroxy
  • 4061 Vitamin D, 25-hydroxy
  • 4808 Vitamin D, 25-hydroxy

If your laboratory no longer performs this testing, please update your activity menu. For any questions, please contact a PT Compliance representative at 800-323-4040 ext. 6052 or 847-832-7000 ext. 6052.

If you would like to order the BGS Survey, please call a Customer Contact Center representative at 800-323-4040, Option 1.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the CAP’s Laboratory Accreditation Program.
