WELCOME TO G-EQUAS
THE GERMAN EXTERNAL QUALITY ASSESSMENT SCHEME
For Analyses in Biological Materials

G-EQUAS

Since 1982 we have been carrying out the German External QUality Assessment Scheme and certification for occupational-medical and environmental-medical toxicological analyses in biological materials. Scheme, evaluation and certification are based on the guidelines of the German Medical Association (Bundesärztekammer). This scheme comprises the determination of toxicological parameters in blood, plasma/serum and urine samples of the occupational as well as the environmental concentration range. About 200 laboratories from more than 35 countries regularly participate in this scheme.
