Quality Control Programme in Clinical Chemistry
The programme has been running regularly since 1978. A committee headed by Dr. A. S.
Kanagasabapathy from Christian Medical College, Vellore with the help and cooperation
of his College started this programme. This is a voluntary participation scheme and all
laboratories are encouraged to participate at a nominal charge. The organizers send one
vial of Q.C. sample by post every month to all participants who are coded to disguise
their identity. The participating laboratories analyze the parameters indicated in the
accompanying report from and report back their result to Vellore within a stipulated time.
All result sent by laboratories are statistically analyzed and the laboratories are given
their score, the designated values along with the acceptable range of values of each
analyte. In this programme only 13 common analytes are included. Now after
extensive trials, Lyophilized Q. C. Material is being distributed.
This has increased the number of parameter tested to 22. Presently, Dr. R. Selvakumar,
Head of the Department of Clinical Biochemistry, C. M. C. Hospital , Vellore is in-charge of this programme .
