Abstract: Within pathology laboratories, quality assessment, internal quality control (QC) and external quality assurance (EQA) are integral components of a laboratory’s quality system. They are tools to ensure that the quality of results being produced by laboratory testing will not compromise the clinical care of the patient. This criterion applies equally when the testing environment changes from the laboratory to the point of care, and the large laboratory instrument becomes a smaller device.
