Quality Control in a Clinical Laboratory

Author(s): Vaneet Kaur; Pawan Kumar Kare*; Himanshu Madaan

Quality Control (QC) is carried out in the laboratory to find out and reduce the errors in the analytical phase of the testing system prior to the release of reports of the patients. High quality laboratory results involve commitment to all phases of testing system including pre-analytical, analytical and post- analytical phases. Pre-analytical phase includes those factors which affect the laboratory results prior to the handling of the sample in the clinical laboratory. Post-analytical factors are those which affect the results after the analytical phase is complete.
