It is easy to get caught up in an abundance of QC statistics and forget the fundamental reason why QC exists in the first instance. QC is about detecting errors and ensuring that the results you produce are accurate and reliable. With 70% of all medical decisions based on laboratory results, we are not examining statistics; we are examining real patients, real results and real lives.

A new 5-part series of educational guides from Randox Quality Control explains how to improve laboratory performance through quality control.

Designing an appropriate QC procedure for your lab – An effective QC strategy is not as complicated as you might think. It vitally import that each and every laboratory, has a well-designed QC procedure in place.

Troubleshooting QC errors – One of your analytes has been flagged as “out-of-control”, what do you do next?

How often is Right for QC? – It is widely accepted that laboratories should perform QC at least every day of patient testing. However, is this adequate for every assay and for every laboratory?

Which QC is the Right QC? – When running internal QC, laboratories need to be assured of the accuracy of the results produced and, to ensure this, confidence in the QC materials used.

The role of EQA in QC – External Quality Assessment plays an essential role in assuring laboratory quality by facilitating inter-laboratory performance comparison and enabling assessment of the complete testing process.
