A delegation of senior technical management staff from Pathology Diagnostics Ltd attended the recent Dako Link-UP Scientific Symposium held in York in late June 2014. Their presence strengthened good connections already in place with Dako staff, and highlighted similarities in quality control and auditing needs with NHS institutes.
The introduction of ISO15189 aims to reduce the uncertainty in laboratory testing, and even though it is focused more towards best-practice within NHS hospitals environs, Pathology Diagnostics Ltd aims to follow its stringent criteria within its industry accredited quality management system and take measures to continue to enhance its quality control through CAPA monitoring.
The overall 'take home' message from the symposium is that to reduce uncertainty in the field of Histopathology, there must be a significant increase in quality control across more organisations (both public and private) within the scientific research community.
