- Automatically calculates Measurement Uncertainty, Total Error and Sigma Metrics
- Bridges the gap between daily quality control and external quality assessment
- Improve EQA performance by eliminating any undetected bias
- Facilitate regulatory compliance
- Reduce false rejections through the use of QC multi-rules
- Increase confidence in assigned QC target values
- Rapid and effective troubleshooting shortening delays in reporting
Acusera 24•7 key features and benefits
The unique Dashboard interface is displayed each time a user logs onto the software, conveniently displaying all QC results that have fallen outside user-defined performance limits in the last seven days.
A range of charts including Levey-Jennings, Histogram and Performance Summary Charts are automatically generated by the QC software providing a visual assessment of analytical performance. The interactive nature of each chart means users have the ability to add multiple instruments, parameters and lots onto the same easy to interpret chart. The ability to combine multiple data sets in this way enables advanced review of any trends or bias.
With Acusera 24•7 Live Online, users have the ability to add multiple instruments, parameters and lots onto the same interactive Histogram, Levey-Jennings or Participant Summary Chart. The ability to combine data enables users to identify and assess trends in QC data or a bias between instruments. Automatically generated by the software, charts can be based on either SD or %DEV.
Our software now automatically calculates %Bias, %CV, Total Error and Sigma metrics, enabling enhanced performance assessment and improved QC strategy design for your laboratory. The added benefit of Uncertainty of Measurement (UM) helps to meet ISO 15189 requirements.
Peer group statistics are uniquely updated every 24 hours ensuring immediate access to the most up to date information available. Peer groups may be based on worldwide statistics or an affiliate group of laboratories allowing enhanced troubleshooting and comparative performance with other laboratories using the same lot of quality control.
Acusera Advisor is an optional tool designed to help laboratories select an optimum QC strategy for each individual test in use. Not only will the advisor tool recommend a set of QC multi-rules, it will also suggest a minimum QC frequency based on the performance of the method in question.
