EQA System

Rest assured, quality guaranteed

EQA monitoring and Proficiency Testing made easy – a super system for managing labs, result entries, assessment and reports with ease.

External Quality Assessment (EQA), sometimes referred to as Proficiency Testing (PT) is an essential aspect of any laboratory operation providing a means of assessing analytical performance compared to other laboratories using the same method and instrument.

A program in which multiple samples are periodically sent to members of a group of laboratories for analysis and/or identification; whereby each laboratory’s results are compared with those of other laboratories in the group and/or with an assigned value, and reported to the participating laboratories and others.

We believe that modern technology is a key ingredient of a compelling EQA system. Gone should be the days of using multiple systems to manage labs, results, assessment and everything in between. Today is a time of collaborative working and we believe an EQA system should embrace these methods. 



Naqoda External Quality Assessment System comes with a vast range of key features such as registering labs and agents, managing labs and staff, issuing distributions, recording results, assessment and reports.


Naqoda External Quality Assessment System has been built with the latest technology. It is based on a micro-services architecture, is cloud enabled and has an open API. Furthermore its low-code framework and integrated tool-set let’s you extend and adapt the application with minimal or no programming.


Naqoda External Quality Assessment System embraces simplicity in design. Its clean, consistent look-and-feel will make your users and customers feel at home at once. Its integrated event driven work flow enables effortless management. Replacing your system or modernising a legacy application can now been done efficiently and quickly.


Naqoda External Quality Assessment System is designed to keep meeting your changing requirements for years to come. Continuous deployment ensures that changes can be quickly and safely deployed.

I really wanted to re-iterate our love for the system. The flexibility it now offers us and the speed at which we can now report results has made having to squish our distribution period (in light of Covid-19) so much easier!

Built in collaboration

Discover how we built the Competition Management System with UK NEQAS for H&I.

The UK National External Quality Assessment Service for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics (UK NEQAS for H&I) provides a comprehensive range of External Quality Assessment (EQA) Schemes for laboratories operating clinical histocompatibility and immunogenetics (H&I) services.

Schemes are available to all clinical laboratories in the UK and overseas and appropriate biotechnology companies.

H&I laboratory support is universally required for both solid organ and haemopoietic stem cell (HSC) transplant programmes and for HLA typing for disease susceptibility and diagnosis, pharmacogenetics, volunteer HSC donor panels and HLA ‘matched’ blood products. The primary laboratory investigations are the determination of subjects’ HLA type, HLA antibody detection and specification and the direct crossmatching of patients’ sera against donor cells.

We provided UK NEQAS for H&I with our External Quality Assessment System. The cloud-based system consolidates all aspects of UK NEQAS for H&I’s assessment from registration to results. Users can manage labs, staff, results and reports with ease.

We worked closely with the team at UK NEQAS for H&I to produce a system that is user friendly and futureproof. We eliminated the need for multiple manual processes, providing a flexible solution tailored to UK NEQAS for H&I’s requirements.

Our Low-Code Development Platform provides full flexibility and our system can be configured and customised to meet your requirements.
