Advanced Instruments, LLC announces the launch of their new web-based Advanced QC™ Peer Group program that allows laboratories to compare their osmometer serum and urine QC to their peers’ data on a real-time and monthly basis.
The Advanced QC Peer Group program was designed in collaboration with Advanced Instruments’ customers. It allows laboratories to troubleshoot issues quickly by providing instant and monthly reports to evaluate internal and external performance in real-time. The Advanced QC Peer Group program also gives labs increased assurance in proficiency survey and patient results. Registration available here.
“We are pleased to deliver a program that helps ensure accurate results in patient testing and helps labs troubleshoot and detect issues quickly. Feedback from usability testing spoke to how simple and intuitive users found the peer group,” said Julie MacKenzie, Product Manager.
Early adopter, Amy Gibbs from Unity Point Health-Methodist in Peoria, Illinois, commented that the Advanced QC Peer group program is an “intuitive program that is easy to use and provides assurance that I am turning out accurate patient results.”
Advanced Instruments manufacturer-recommended osmometer controls—Protinol™ Protein- Based Controls and Renol™ Urine Osmolality Controls— are designed specifically for osmolality testing, in comparison to third party controls. Protinol and Renol ensure optimal instrument performance and are used every day by labs to help meet regulatory requirements for quality control.
Advanced Instruments has a world-class portfolio of single- and multi-sample osmometers. Osmolality results are vital to the diagnosis and treatment of body fluid disorders and even a slight shift in osmolality may be clinically significant— potentially changing the course of treatment.
