Quality control (QC) is one of the most important impacts on laboratory testing. It ensures both precision and accuracy of patient sample results.
Effective quality control help correct flaws in the analytical processes of a lab before potentially incorrect patient results are released.
This course focuses on providing a systematic, process-oriented approach to meeting quality objectives, and delivering consistent, high-quality, cost-effective laboratory services through the implementation of QC.
