The reality is far from that. Those on the cutting edge of QC design and strategy say that appropriate QC design may vary depending upon the goals of the lab and that there often is no single right answer. And maybe that’s what makes many uncomfortable. This article reviews key concepts from a symposium presented at the AACC annual meeting in Houston last summer. As speakers, we, along with James Westgard, PhD, were asked to talk about QC design in a real and practical manner. We discussed how it can be accomplished, and then demonstrated how it was accomplished in one lab, and the benefit the lab derived from it.
