Quality Control Materials

Choose your Quality control material

Surplus test materials from the batch used for the PT may be available for purchase as quality control (QC) samples. These QC samples may be used for troubleshooting poor performance in the PT, training of new staff, method development or generating QC charts. CGPTP QCs have an associated datasheet which provides the same data of assigned values and performance limits as in the PT. The stability assessment of QC samples is the same as that for the PT.

Uses and properties of Quality Control (QC) samples
  • Troubleshoot PT performance
  • Generate control charts
  • Training staff
  • Provide laboratory performance limits under normal parameters
  • Stability estimated for short-term use
  • Available immediately after the PT is reported
