        Nico studied in Bruges Belgium in the Higher Technical Institute and graduated in 1995 as a Bachelor in Clinical Chemistry with a dual degree in Information Technologies and Chemistry. He worked in a clinical lab for and then for a Biotech company as head of the research lab before starting at Bio-Rad as Field Application Specialist. In 2010, Nico became product manager for the Quality Systems Division in Irvine, California where he managed the Unity and EQAS informatics programs.


      Abstract

      Starting a new quality control or reagent lot is a critical point in the workflow of a lab.  Standard clinical laboratory practices can vary during this process and these changes have the potential to adversely affect patient results and lab operations. To ensure your laboratory produces consistent patient results, this webinar will present the most recent developments and best practices to perform quality control and reagent cross-over studies.

      Learning Objectives:

      1. Identify how to establish the new mean and standard deviation (SD)

      2. Describe the new simplified CLSI C24 (A4) guidance to perform cross-over studies

      3. Explain how to use QC and patient specimens to verify the integrity of a new reagent lot
