Quality doesn't happen by itself! Quality must be achieved by work processes that are carefully planned, properly operated, optimally controlled, appropriately measured, and continuously improved, i.e., by proper management of quality. This lesson emphasizes the need for standard laboratory processes to provide consistent quality, as well as standards of quality to guide the management of those processes. (Preview)
Elsa P. Quam, BS MT(ASCP) joins Dr. Westgard in describing the importance of these two experiments. There are times when comparison methods are not available and experiments for linearity or reportable range and replication are not enough. If your laboratory modifies a manufacturer's method, you need to know how to perform the interference and recovery experiments. Sample data calculations are included.
