GECLID is an interlaboratory comparisons' program for immunology labs

Biological samples within the program are usually real samples, of non-repetitive patients, who are recruited by different health centers, similar to the cases you may receive any day. GECLID has Immunologists, health professionals, who provide their experience andvision for management and workflows of the program. The head of this program since its beginning in 2011, Dr Carmen Martín, is as well an Immunologist, ready to help you with any questions related to the controls and other issues related to both quality and diagnosis .

You can enroll the program all along the year at GECLID website and -if you recorded your registration with your user-, you can recover all your data and just modify what you need in less than 2 minutes . If you are new by us or you hadn't your registration recorded last year, you can also register from the web (https://www.geclid.es/mod/feedback/view.php?id=8397 ) . Shipping schedule is also available at www.geclid.es .
