Abstract

The importance of laboratory test results in the practice of medicine and the increasing complexity of many modern laboratory procedures makes it essential that quality control (QC) measures be instituted to monitor the rapidly expanding, often automated, laboratory technology. QC is the responsibility of all laboratory personnel. QC procedures should be performed on a regular basis in the Mycobacteriology laboratory to assure reproducibility and reliability of laboratory results. For a QC to be helpful, it must be practicable and workable. Most of the clinical laboratories in the developing countries lack a well organised QC network. On the contrary, the majority of the clinical laboratories in the USA are under the jurisdiction of one or more accreditation agencies.
