Recommendations for the application and the follow-up of quality controls in medical biology laboratories

Recommendations for the application and the follow-up of quality controls in medical biology laboratories

The recommendations that we formulate in this document come from LABAC, SFBC and FAEEQ. They describe the different steps from the initial application of quality controls, based on risk analysis: the changes of reagent batches or internal quality controls (IQC) batches, the course when IQC are not in accordance with references, the choice of external quality evaluation and the interpretation of its results, the comparability of results obtained in several analysers used in the same laboratory. Lastly, measurement uncertainty, robustness of methods and specificities of near-patient biology and rapid tests are described. Note that these recommendations cannot develop all cases that we could find in laboratories. It remains necessary to carry out an objective strategy, supported with documentary evidences.
