Radiometer America’s analyzers have automatic QC (quality control). This reduces the risk of errors, saves valuable time and provides laboratory staff with a powerful set of tools to establish and verify accurate and precise analyzer performance.
QC designed for Radiometer America blood gas analyzers
Radiometer America's ABL series of blood gas analyzers automatically perform QC, check the analytical system, initiate necessary corrective actions and document all activities.
Everything from inlet to waste is controlled in this process, and assessed across QC lot changes via QC data logs, QC statistics and Levey-Jennings plots.
QC measurements are automatically evaluated against calibration status, analyzer malfunctions and QC control ranges, and given a status to provide the operator with an overall analyzer parameter status.
If a QC result is outside the control range, the analyzer can repeat the QC measurement automatically while attempting to remedy the situation. The parameter can also be automatically locked out, prompting the operator to intervene.
