|“QUALITY IS THE DEGREE TO WHICH A SET OF INHERENT CHARACTERISTICS FULFILS REQUIREMENT “- ISO 9000 We at SIKUND DIAGNOSTIC CENTRE believe that quality assurance is a dynamic process. In order to ensure high standards , diagnostic accuracy and precison in our reporting we follow stringent operating procedures and quality assurance programs. Our lab follows internal and external quality assurance control programs at regular intervals.
INTERNAL QUALITY CONTROL
It is useful to detect, reduce, and correct deficiencies in a laboratory’s internal analytical process prior to the release of patient results. Internal Quality control is a measure of precision, or how well the measurement system reproduces the same result over time and under varying operating conditions. It is usually run at the beginning of each shift, after an instrument is serviced, when reagent lots are changed, after calibration, and whenever patient results seem inappropriate.
EXTERNAL QUALITY CONTROL
We believe that regular participation in an external quality assessment scheme (EQAS) is critical for ensuring acceptable laboratory performance facilitating optimal patient care. It helps to identify the degree of agreement between our laboratory`s results and those obtained by others.
