Quality Assurance :

Internal Quality Controls (IQC):

  • Third party quality controls (Bio-Rad and Randox) are run every day at pre- determined intervals before the commencement of testing of actual patient samples
  • Daily analysis of results of controls are done on basis of Westgard’s QC Multi-Rules and corrective actions are taken before analysing patient’s samples

External Quality Assessment Scheme (EQAS):

External quality assessment schemes are accepted all over the world as invaluable tools for laboratories, to assess the accuracy of test results. Our laboratory has participated in EQAS programme of Bio-Rad and Randox to improve performance and overall quality of laboratory practices.

  • Ideal blood collection via vacutainer system to avoid activation of clotting mechanism
  • Pneumatic system for rapid transport of samples which significantly reduce TAT
  • Periodic calibration of machines
  • Complete documentation like log books for instruments, daily, weekly and monthly maintenance books etc.
  • Every 4 hours monitoring and documentation of various temperature-sensitive instruments like a refrigerator and deep freezer where reagents, kits and samples are stored
  • Bidirectional Interfacing of all instrument to software, so that transfer of data occurs automatically i.e. No manual error while preparing reports
  • A dual check of reports by qualified and well trained technical staff and final approval by pathologist
  • A repeat of abnormal samples and critical value samples by different technologists
