Example-- Creating a Quality Control Plan (QCP) To Control Test Quality and Minimize Risk

The next step in the process is to create a robust QCP. The statistical QC program for ammonia testing is adequate and includes:

  • Testing two levels of control materials every 24 hours of patient testing
  • Multirule approach to statistical QC
  • Peer review program for ammonia testing
  • Participation in a proficiency testing program with all testing personnel participating on a rotating basis
  • Calibration or calibration verification every six months
  • Required corrective actions for QC failure
QC information from the instrument manufacturer indicates that electronic system checks are in place to ensure proper functioning of the measuring system.
