Quality control (QC) troubleshooting can be a daunting and complex task. This workshop will provide guidance on the use of analytical goals and interlaboratory program report information as an additional tool to investigate out of control conditions in the laboratory.


After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss how analytical goals help with QC troubleshooting.
  • Differentiate QC limits from analytical goals.
  • Identify how 2 performance indicators in your interlaboratory can support your QC troubleshooting.
