`Quality control vital to validate diagnostic results'

Our Bureau

Chennai , May 5

BIO-RAD Laboratories, a company that markets quality control material for diagnostic machines, on Wednesday held a workshop here to increase awareness of the importance of its products in gauging the accuracy of the results of diagnostic tests.

At a press conference, Ms Sonal Pandya, Bio-Rad's Product Manager, said quality control was necessary to validate test results. Though diagnostic machines come with in-built control measures, a neutral control measure would be better, she added.

Currently, quality control on tests results is not mandatory in India. Ms Pandya said quality control was made compulsory in some countries, Australia and the US, for instance.

According to Ms Pandya, the National Accreditation Board for Calibration and Testing Labs had accredited about 40-45 clinical labs.
