About Us

Interlab Proficiency Trials

As a world-leading quality assurance testing company in the medical device industry, Enersol provides laboratory proficiency trials for condoms, gloves and other devices. Our testing laboratories are accredited as conforming with ISO 17025, and a key requirement of this accreditation is the participation in Proficiency Trials. Enersol’s trials are the largest of their kind, and provide the participants with detailed reports and guidance. Enersol’s ISO 9001 certification scope includes the provision and reporting for proficiency trials.

What does this mean for our testing customers and to participants of Enersol proficiency trials?

Participating in Proficiency Trials is a key activity for ensuring performance and proficiency in testing techniques. It is also a requirement of ISO 17025 accreditation bodies. Participation in PT allows laboratories to compare their results and techniques against other participants to ensure that they consistently perform to the industry standard and aim for continuous improvement.

Enersol participates in proficiency trials for the same reasons and to be the best in the world at what we do. The process also allows us to identify any issues, and conduct our own quality assurance on our services to maintain the highest level of proficiency and quality for our clients.
