Bio-Rad’s Mission: Control helps labs determine the right QC strategy to minimize risk of harm to the patient. We help answer questions like, what is your level of confidence that out-of-control conditions are being quickly identified? How often should controls be run for specific assays—is there an optimal frequency? How can QC be managed to minimize the risk of releasing incorrect patient results? Laboratories without a properly designed QC strategy may not be able to quickly detect critical system malfunctions before releasing erroneous patient results.
Mission: Control helps increase a lab’s level of confidence to quickly identify out of control conditions. If your QC plan includes less than optimal QC frequency, ranges, and rules, you may be headed toward unreliable results without warnings.
A patient risk approach to QC is a step toward improving quality assurance and patient care. We can help you understand what this means for your lab and how to take steps to implement an effective QC plan for your analytical phase of testing.
We help you quantify your risk of reporting incorrect patient results. You can confidently select QC rules and frequency that fit your lab’s acceptable risk level and assess how much you can lower your risk based upon instrument performance.
