What is Quality Control? Quality control in the medical laboratory is a statistical process used to monitor and evaluate the analytical process that produces patient results. When a diagnostic test is performed in the medical laboratory, the outcome of the test is a result. The result may be a patient result or it may be a quality control (QC File Size: 1MB.   // Clinical Laboratory News // All CLN Articles // Best Practices in Establishing Quality Control Parameters. Quality control (QC) is a foundational practice in the clinical laboratory and is a routine and mandatory task. QC encompasses the analysis of QC materials and comparison of the observed values to the expected distribution under stable. The nonparametric approach involves establishing the values falling at the and percentiles of the population as the lower and upper reference limits. The first step is to enter the analyte values in a spreadsheet and sort them in ascending order of magnitude. The number of values in the data set is then multiplied by and to.   Quality control (QC) ranges for antimicrobial agents against QC strains for both dilution and disk diffusion testing are currently set by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI), using data gathered in predefined structured multilaboratory studies, so Cited by:
