AQuAS Program is a external proficiency testing program in which 134 Labs from 14 Asian countries are now participating. The purposes of this program is to establish the quality assurance survey program in all fields of clinical pathology and subsequently to improve and standardize the quality of clinical laboratory tests and help to remove inter-laboratory disparities, and finally improve the human health.
