        T135 Quality Control and Quality Management for Molecular Testing

        Date: February 19, 2013; 2:00 p.m. (EST)
        Speaker: Frederick S. Nolte, Ph.D.

        Description: Quality management is the overall process, pre-analytical, analytical, and post-analytical, used to ensure that laboratory results meet the requirements for health care services to patients. Quality control and proficiency testing evaluate the measurement process and are important parts of an integrated quality management system.  The objective of this session is to review those aspects of quality control and management that present unique challenges for molecular microbiology.

        Intended Audience: The course is open to anyone! However, since it is a practical course, laboratory personnel (e.g., medical technologists, supervisors, and directors) with a minimum of a bachelors-degree and familiarity with clinical microbiology would benefit the most. Limited to U.S. and Canadian residents.

        Objectives: Following this session, the participants should be able to:

        • Understand the essential components of quality management system for a molecular microbiology laboratory.
        • Discuss the different quality control requirements for qualitative, quantitative, multiplex, laboratory-developed and FDA-cleared.
        • Describe the challenges facing laboratories regarding proficiency testing programs and availability well-characterized reference materials and how they can be tackled.
