Essential points to be addressed in order to achieve good quality in a medical laboratory, the following must be done:-

  • SOP (standard operating procedures) Must be developed for each phase of the laboratory testing procedures, starting from the handing of the specimen to the validation of the results. Must maintain and define institutional requirements, including files that are considered to be libraries, audits, and data analysis that will document SOP compliance on an ongoing basis.

  • Must have a strategy and procedure for all the process and should be followed by all. Should have responsible individuals to understand and correct the paperwork and should be keen to correct the problem.
