Quality Management Group

The Quality Management Group (QMG) is responsible for the planning, organization and direction of the quality management system within all points of Biotech Molecular Diagnostic Lab (BMDL) in accordance with appropriate accreditation and regulatory bodies. The aims of these recommendations may be summarized thus:

  • To meet the needs of relevant standards i.e. ISO 9001:2008
  • To ensure that sufficient resources and management time is devoted to quality
  • To put all areas of BMDL under central quality management control
  • To formalize External Quality Assessment management procedures

Quality Assurance (QA) is the use of monitoring techniques, including inspections and audits, to promote confidence in laboratory results, to assure the quality of the data generated and to ensure compliance with accrediting body such as United Registrar Systems (URS).

Quality Control (QC) is the use of techniques to reduce discord and discrepancy in results of measurement of the same quantity in the same material.

External Quality Assessment (EQA) is the process whereby a laboratory’s analytical performance is assessed with respect to its peers using analytical material obtained from external provider such as External Quality Assessment Scheme (EQAS), Randox International Quality Assessment Scheme (RIQAS) and College of American Pathologists, (CAP) Proficiency Testing.

NEQAPP (National External Quality Assurance Programme Pakistan)

A proficiency testing programme of clinical laboratories. The proposed National External Quality Assurance Programme Pakistan (NEQAPP) is a milestone in the Quality Assurance system in Pakistan. The primary aims of proficiency testing are to strengthen a standard of Clinical laboratory by providing medical professionals with a comprehensive, quality and cost effective EQA scheme to reduce the risk of errors in tab results. This provides better patent care and quality results.
