Proceduresundertaken in a lab—e.g., use of standardised specimens, control samples, delta checks, etc.—to assess the quality and reliability of its results, and whether or not those results can be released.
The present study showed that the capacity of laboratories assessed was limited and unsatisfactory in the number of tests performed at health center laboratories, in internal quality control measure implementation, in the distribution of qualified medical laboratory professionals among different health facility laboratories, in getting up-to-date in-service training to staffs, in having the proper stock of laboratory materials and reagents in their stores, and in having basic laboratory equipment and material.
With the right online data-management system in place, meeting IQCP requirements and ensuring effective monitoring of internal quality control, both in and out of the laboratory, could get significantly easier.
The assay results for the first 6 drill holes (CSRC12_008 - CSRC12_013) have been received after some considerable delays due to internal quality control performed by the laboratory due to the very high grade of the graphite.
This time, the culprit appears to be a lack of internal quality control. That's harder to forgive, particularly given that the public has little tolerance for mistakes or carelessness involving products for children, said analyst Steve Brozak of WBB Securities.
The material has undergone some rearrangement for the new edition, and features three new chapters on charting methods for assessing the indirect ELISA, ruggedness and robustness of tests- aspects of kit use and validation, and internal quality control and external quality management of data.
The FADL complies with the ISO/IEC 17025 requirement to have "quality control procedures for monitoring the validity of tests and calibrations undertaken." (1(p20)) Quality control procedures include the regular use of certified reference materials and/or internal quality control using secondary reference materials, and replication of tests or calibrations using the same or different methods.
