Recent technological developments have enabled a proliferation in the number of tide gauges providing data in real time. Sites such as the IOC Sea Level Station Monitoring Facility aggregate these records and make them freely available. However, these records are not quality controlled, and can contain many errors that restrict their usefulness. Manual quality control is time consuming, and many authorities lack the resources to support it for all of the gauges they have available. As part of the Commonwealth Marine Economies Programme we have developed MATLAB software that performs automatic quality control of data from the IOC site. The quality control procedure is fully described in an internal NOC report. We cannot guarantee that this code will identify all tide-gauge errors, but you are welcome to try it on your data. Running the code requires MATLAB, including the Statistics Toolbox and was developed using release 2016b. The main function is tidegaugeQC.m, and some examples of how to use ...

Background: Preanalytical variables, such as sample collection, handling, transport, and storage, may affect patient results. The number of errors in the preanalytical phase may decrease by following standardized procedures.. Methods: A retrospective analysis (2001-2005) of results obtained through the Spanish Society of Clinical Chemistry and Molecular Pathology Quality Assessment Program for the Preanalytical Phase has been carried out to summarize data regarding the main factors affecting the preanalytical phase quality. In such a program, participants are asked to register rejections and causes for rejection of routine or stat samples usually and locally collected at their laboratories.. Results: Results discussed refer to 105 laboratories. Of the 4,715,132 tubes expected to be received during the data collection period among participating laboratories and according to determinations included by clinicians in the request form, 32,977 (0.699%) offered a cause for rejection. Whole blood-EDTA ...
The GMP training modules are now backed up with a video and a CD-ROM, so that after attending workshops participants can continue to learn about and also guide others on GMP implementation. Progress in China has been particularly rapid - only around 800 of the countrys 6300 pharmaceutical manufacturers met GMP standards in 2000. But thanks to increasing collaboration between Chinas State Drug Administration and WHO, all pharmaceutical manufacturers are projected to become GMP-compliant by 2004 (Figure 3).. Strengthening official medicines control laboratories is another major element of quality assurance. WHOs external quality control programme counted 36 participating laboratories by the end of 2001. International Chemical Reference Materials were provided to all participating laboratories in order to enhance then-capacity to carry out pharmacopoeial tests for essential medicines.. Work carried out in 2001 showed that counterfeit and substandard medicines continue to be a major concern ...

Developments in the United Kingdom national external quality assessment scheme for virology are described. There are about 198 participants (170 in the UK) who are enrolled for examination of any or all of five categories of specimen (distribution types). These are detection of rubella antibody (128 UK participants), detection of hepatitis B surface antigen (130 UK participants), general virus serology (86 UK participants), virus identification (85 UK participants), and electron microscopy (56 UK participants). Specimens of a sixth category (rubella IgM antibody), not yet formally established, have also been distributed to 67 UK participants. Specimens in each distribution type are sent out once or twice a year, and, except for rubella IgM antibody, participants have been given a score of 2, 1, 0 or -1 marks for their reports on each specimen. Their cumulative scores and performance ratings are calculated retrospectively over a 12 month period for each distribution type separately and for ...
and sometimes separated by soil type or soil pH. Conversion equations are also presented from an external quality control program (NAPT) where soils are representative of a wide range of locations across North America. The wide range of soil types makes the NAPT equations unsuitable for conducting actual conversions. The equations from the NAPT program are presented here for comparative purposes only.. When making conversions, it is important to know the unit of the soil test value being converted. There is no standard unit for presenting soil test values. The most common units used are ppm and lbs/acre. The ppm stands for parts per million and is equivalent to milligrams of nutrient per kg soil (mg/kg). A unit used in scientific literature and advocated by Mehlich (1972) is milligrams of nutrient per cubic decimeter (mg/dm3). All units have the weight of nutrient measured in the numerator. This weight can be in the metric unit of milligrams (mg) or English unit of pounds (lbs). Difference in ...

Monitoring efforts strive to generate high quality information. Quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) are processes that ensure data integrity and minimize errors. Examples of good QA and QC practices include receiving proper training in monitoring methods, calibration, using electronic data capture tools that have built-in checks for errors, and reviewing data before leaving a point and at the end of the season. QA and QC occur throughout the monitoring process. Everyone involved in a monitoring effort is responsible for some portion of QA and QC. Make sure that everyone on your monitoring team is familiar with their QA and QC responsibilities. The Terrestrial AIM Data Management Protocol_V2.0 carefully explains QA and QC responsibilities for everyone involved with the process. ...

Introduction: Using labeled peptides enjoys high importance in nuclear medicine. Somatostatin analogs labeled with different radionuclide are vastly investigated for diagnosis or treatment of somatostatin receptor positive tumors. Labeling somatostatin analogs with 99mTc as alternative of 111In needs doing different quality control method for determination of labeling yield and complex stability for clinic applications. Methods: For determining radiochemical purity, three different methods were compared and evaluated including HPLC, TLC and Sep-Pak. Results: All the three methods were suitable for determining of radiochemical purity in peptide kits, although using HPLC was more effective rather than the others. Conclusion: HPLC was the best method for determination of radiochemical purity of the peptide kits. TLC or Sep-Pak method should only be employed if HPLC is not available in nuclear medicine clinics, and after training and gaining sufficient operational experience. Methods: In this research, a
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies have been widely used in life sciences. However, several kinds of sequencing artifacts, including low-quality reads and contaminating reads, were found to be quite common in raw sequencing data, which compromise downstream analysis. Therefore, quality control (QC) is essential for raw NGS data. However, although a few NGS data quality control tools are publicly available, there are two limitations: First, the processing speed could not cope with the rapid increase of large data volume. Second, with respect to removing the contaminating reads, none of them could identify contaminating sources de novo, and they rely heavily on prior information of the contaminating species, which is usually not available in advance. Here we report QC-Chain, a fast, accurate and holistic NGS data quality-control method. The tool synergeticly comprised of user-friendly tools for (1) quality assessment and trimming of raw reads using Parallel-QC, a fast read processing tool; (2)

The survey on quality control of home ventilators provided extensive up-to-date information, yielding four main results. First, the quality-control procedures of HMV showed considerable inter- and intra-country variability, which was consistent with the lack of standardised protocols. Secondly, there is poor exchange of information and feedback between the prescribing centres and the external companies performing the ventilator servicing. Thirdly, a minority of centres actively participate in aspects related to equipment quality control. Fourthly, only a few centres are aware of the procedures of vigilance of medical devices, and only a few knew about the existence of associations of HMV patients. Moreover, the data strongly suggest that large prescriber centres have improved HMV quality-control procedures.. It could be argued that the information obtained in the present survey does not exactly reflect the situation as regards HMV quality control in Europe. The main potential source of bias is ...
Establishment of sustainable and evidence-based surveillance systems are recommended for prevention of microbial resistance by the World Health Organization (WHO). As a necessity of these surveillance systems, participants are recommended to implement an external quality assessment (EQA) program. In this scope, National Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System (NARSS) has been established within the Public Health Institute of Turkey (PHIT) in our country since 2011. In the scope of this surveillance, NARSS EQA program has been implemented in a cycle per year and four isolates were sent to participants per cycle every year since 2011. In this study, it was aimed to evaluate the six years results of the EQA programs being implemented on NARSS participants between 2011 and 2016. The surveillance system consisted of 118 laboratories. Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Enterococcus faecium/faecalis and Acinetobacter ...

Statistical methods for ranking differentially expressed genes (DEGs) from gene expression data should be evaluated with regard to high sensitivity, specificity, and reproducibility. In our previous studies, we evaluated eight gene ranking methods applied to only Affymetrix GeneChip data. A more general evaluation that also includes other microarray platforms, such as the Agilent or Illumina systems, is desirable for determining which methods are suitable for each platform and which method has better inter-platform reproducibility. We compared the eight gene ranking methods using the MicroArray Quality Control (MAQC) datasets produced by five manufacturers: Affymetrix, Applied Biosystems, Agilent, GE Healthcare, and Illumina. The area under the curve (AUC) was used as a measure for both sensitivity and specificity. Although the highest AUC values can vary with the definition of true DEGs, the best methods were, in most cases, either the weighted average difference (WAD), rank products (RP), or

SProCoP Version 1.3. Bereman Lab, NCSU. http://www4.ncsu.edu/~msberema/. Statistical process control (SPC) is a robust set of tools that aids in the visualization, detection, and identification of assignable causes of variation in any process that creates products, services, or information. A tool has been developed termed Statistical Process Control in Proteomics (SProCoP) which implements aspects of SPC (e.g., control charts and Pareto analysis) into the Skyline software. It provides real time evaluation of the chromatographic performance (e.g., retention time reproducibility, peak asymmetry, and resolution); and mass spectrometric performance (targeted peptide ion intensity and mass measurement accuracy for high resolving power instruments) via control charts and boxplots. Its power as a quality control procedure lies in its emphasis on early detection of the LC MS/MS process performing outside experimentally-defined thresholds. SProCoP is compatible with both low resolution (i.e, SRM) and ...
Of the 230 organizations, 128 (56%) submitted quarterly reports that accounted for 606,951 (76.8%) of the rapid tests distributed. Of these tests, 372,960 (61.4%) were administered for diagnostic purposes, 60,294 (9.9%) were used for external quality control, and 25,378 (4.2%) were used for training. The remaining 148,319 (24.4%) tests either had not yet been used at the time the reports were submitted, had been returned to CDC and redistributed to other organizations, or had expired before they could be administered. On average, approximately one rapid test was used for external quality control for every six rapid tests used for diagnostic purposes (60,294 versus 372,960). Among tests administered, results from 5,385 (1.4%) were preliminary positive for HIV, and 4,650 (1.2%) were confirmed as HIV positive from samples drawn at the rapid testing sites; similarly, during 2003--2005, the same 230 organizations reported that 1.5% of results from 600,732 conventional tests were confirmed positive. ...

Molecular diagnostic tests comprising transcript abundance (TA) measurement have great potential to better predict cancer risk, prognosis, and the optimal therapeutic for each individual. However, this potential is limited by the status of clinical sample collection and processing methods. Methods typically practiced today yield clinical samples with wide variation in RNA quality. Efforts to improve these methods are limited in part by inadequate means to measure RNA quality. Further, use of existing banks of biospecimens with variable RNA quality is limited due to inadequate RNA quality control (QC) measurement methods. This prevents establishment of appropriate cut-off criteria by which to determine which samples will yield reliable reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) results. Sources of inter-sample variation in RNA quality include RNA integrity, genomic DNA (gDNA) contamination, and substances or methods that either a) interfere with RT efficiency, and/or b) carry over ...
In previous work, we reported the development of caCORRECT, a novel microarray quality control system built to identify and correct spatial artifacts commonly found on Affymetrix arrays. We have made recent improvements to caCORRECT, including the development of a model-based data-replacement strategy and integration with typical microarray workflows via caCORRECTs web portal and caBIG grid services. In this report, we demonstrate that caCORRECT improves the reproducibility and reliability of experimental results across several common Affymetrix microarray platforms. caCORRECT represents an advance over state-of-art quality control methods such as Harshlighting, and acts to improve gene expression calculation techniques such as PLIER, RMA and MAS5.0, because it incorporates spatial information into outlier detection as well as outlier information into probe normalization. The ability of caCORRECT to recover accurate gene expressions from low quality probe intensity data is assessed using a combination

Introduction: Radiochemical purity (RCP) is a routine quality control test carried out at nuclear medicine to determine the concentration of various chemical species present in the radiopharmaceuticals (RPs). The present work describes three years of experience in a single institute for the measurement of these impurities in the RPs preparations. Methods: The RCP of different cold kit preparations were performed by chromatographic methods. Specifically, a small drop of the aliquot was spotted on the specific paper acting as the stationary phase and then developed in different solvents as mobile phases. The developed chromatograms were then quantified for various chemical species by Mini TLC scanner or well type counter. Results:The retention factor (Rf) values for the different chemical species in the labeling of RP were measured by using single, double or triple solvent systems. It was observed that 2.70% of the kits had RCP less than the acceptable limit whereas 97.30% kits were found within the

Read a description of Quality Control. This is also known as Data Quality Control, Total Quality Management, TQM, Quality Standards. Free detailed reports on Quality Control are also available.
Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS)-based proteomics studies of large sample cohorts can easily require from months to years to complete. Acquiring consistent, high-quality data in such large-scale studies is challenging because of normal variations in instrumentation performance over time, as well as artifacts introduced by the samples themselves, such as those due to collection, storage and processing. Existing quality control methods for proteomics data primarily focus on post-hoc analysis to remove low-quality data that would degrade downstream statistics; they are not designed to evaluate the data in near real-time, which would allow for interventions as soon as deviations in data quality are detected. In addition to flagging analyses that demonstrate outlier behavior, evaluating how the data structure changes over time can aide in understanding typical instrument performance or identify issues such as a degradation in data quality due to the need for instrument cleaning and/or ...
Van Schaik et al. reply: We agree that adequate and regular quality control of HIV test kits as well as adequate training in performing HIV tests are extremely important..

This multicenter reproducibility study has defined 7H9 broth microdilution MIC QC ranges for commonly used anti-TB drugs, using the M. tuberculosis reference strain H37Rv. The study employed a consensus methodology devised by experienced M. tuberculosis investigators from various geographically separate laboratories, in accordance with CLSI guidance (8, 10).. To our knowledge, MIC ranges for TB drugs have not previously been established for the M. tuberculosis reference strain H37Rv in a tier-2 study. One study assessed 7H9 broth microdilution for DST of common anti-TB drugs but did not report the actual MIC values (13). However, similar MIC distributions have been reported for the same reference strain between different liquid culture systems, with MIC variability of a 2-fold dilution or less (5). Studies using 7H10 agar or Bactec MGIT 960 and Bactec 460 determined MICs against H37Rv of 0.5 μg/ml for ofloxacin, 0.125 μg/ml for moxifloxacin, 0.25 μg/ml for levofloxacin, 2 μg/ml for ...
The QUASIMEME Project (1993-1996) was established to assist European laboratories to improve the data they produce in marine monitoring programmes. Through laboratory performance Studies (with six-monthly reports), workshops and expert visits the programme was fully interactive. There were five rounds of laboratory performance studies. For the nutrient section, in which about 50 laboratories took part, the reference materials distributed to the participants consisted of standard solutions of nutrients and seawater samples stabilized by autoclaving. The material included low and high concentrations typical of those encountered in coastal seawater; at least two samples with different concentrations were distributed in each round. Robust statistics were used to determine the means and standard deviations for each set of results. For inorganic nutrients, the assessment of the data for bias and precision was based mainly on a Z- and P-scoring system in which targets of +/- 6% were allocated to the ...

External quality assurance (EQA) programs are vital to ensure high quality and standardized results in molecular diagnostics. It is important that EQA for quantitative analysis takes into account the variation in methodology. Results cannot be expected to be more accurate than limits of the technology used, and it is essential to recognize factors causing substantial outlier results. The present study aimed to identify parameters of specific importance for JAK2 V617F quantification by quantitative PCR, using different starting materials, assays, and technical platforms. Sixteen samples were issued to participating laboratories in two EQA rounds. In the first round, 19 laboratories from 11 European countries analyzing JAK2 V617F as part of their routine diagnostics returned results from in-house assays. In the second round, 25 laboratories from 17 countries participated. Despite variations in starting material, assay setup and instrumentation the laboratories were generally well aligned in the EQA

Results Overall, of 576 cases (172 benign, 11 atypical hyperplasia, 98 ductal carcinoma in situ/microinvasive and 295 invasive disease), consistency of assessment of diagnostic parameters was very high (overall k=0.80; k for benign diagnosis=0.79; k for invasive disease=0.91). For distinguishing benign versus malignant lesions, no further improvement is considered possible in view of the limitations of the scheme methodology. Although diagnostic consistency of atypical hyperplasia remains at a low level, combining it with the benign category results in a high level of agreement (k=0.93). The level of consistency of reporting prognostic information is variable and some items such as lymphovascular invasion and tumour size measurement may need further intervention to improve their reporting consistency. Although the level of consistency of reporting of histological grade remained at a moderate level overall (k=0.48), it was variable among cases and appears to have levelled off; no further ...

Knowledge about tumour gene mutation status is essential for the treatment of increasing numbers of cancer patients, and testing quality has a major impact on treatment response and cost. In 2012, 4,629 tests for BRAF p.V600 were performed in France, in patients with melanomas. Two batches of unstained melanoma sections were sent, in May and November 2012, to the 46 laboratories supported by the French National Institute of Cancer (INCa). An external quality assessment (EQA) evaluated mutation status, response times and compliance with INCa recommendations. All the French laboratories involved in testing participated in the EQA. Fourteen different methods were used to detect BRAF mutations, most consisting of combinations of in-house techniques. False responses were noted in 25/520 cases (4.8%), 11 of which concerned confusion between p.V600E and p.V600K. Thus, 2.7% of responses would have led to inappropriate treatment. Within six months, mean response times decreased from 22 to 12 days (P|0.001), and

Misfolded proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) are eliminated by a quality-control system called ER-associated protein degradation (ERAD). However, how misfolded proteins in the inner nuclear membrane (INM), a specialized ER subdomain, are degraded is not known. Here, a quantitative proteomics approach revealed an ERAD branch required for INM protein quality control in yeast. This branch involved the integral membrane proteins Asi1, Asi2, and Asi3, which assembled into an Asi complex. Besides INM misfolded proteins, the Asi complex promoted the degradation of functional regulators of sterol biosynthesis. Asi-mediated ERAD was required for ER homeostasis, which suggests that spatial segregation of protein quality-control systems contributes to ER function.. ...
