In the last few years the resistance development against antibiotics increased. For this reason we already launched a survey for MRSA-Screening. To complete our proposal and promote standardisation, we would like to announce surveys for MRGN-Screening (multi-resistant-gramnegative bacteria) and VRE-Screening (Vancomycin resistant Enterococci). More information are available in our current survey-scheme.
Survey newborn screening
In the surveys for newborn screening the analytes IRT and PAP were added, which are determined in the context of early detection of cystic fibrosis (CF). With this new offer of analytes we have changed in our program the short name of the survey TS to NBS (Newborn screening) from the 2nd survey 2016 on. Existing orders for TS have been set according to NBS.
New analyte anti-Müllerian hormone in survey SD
After multiple requests by our participants, we have introduced the analyte in our survey pregnancy (SD) diagnostic. The first evaluation will be available in survey SD2/16.
Webupdate 2016 released
From now on, our webupdate for 2016 is active. We have implemented the new function "reminder e-mails" for you, in order that you don't forget a survey deadline. In addition, new long-term evaluations are available under the "evaluations" section. Please find the details here.
New analyte osmolality
In our survey for clinical chemical analytes in serum (wet chemistry, KS) you can now also determine the osmolality.
Survey: Are you interested in a ring trial about Ethyl glucuronide in urine
The RfB intends to provide surveys for the determination of ethyl glucuronide (ETG) from urine. In order to plan these surveys and assess their needs, we ask you to return this form to us if you are interested in. Alternatively just send us an email with your participation number and the keyword "Ethyl clucuronide in urine". Our e-mail address is email@example.com
Preganancy tests are no longer “ringversuchspflichtig”
The according publication of the “deutsche Ärzteblatt” can be downloaded here.
Immunological surveys are open for registration
Starting from now, our new immunological surveys (such as BorrBimm), that will be on in the second half of the year, are open for registration. As usual, registrations are accepted by web, by post, by fax (registration form) or by phone.
Improved scheme for your current surveys
The participant pages are now divided into “past”, “current” and “upcoming” survey sections. These are controlled by tabs. With this, we hope to improve the scheme of your current RfB-survey.
