Quality assurance in the field of biomedical analyses : the role and the contribution of the BCR program of the European Communities.
Italo-Hungarian symposium on spectrochemistry : quality control and assurance in life sciences. Pisa (ITA), 1991/09/09.
It is now widely recognized that the Western World has reached a high standard of living through the improvement of technologies and their application to environmental protection, safety, and health.
The quality of life results in particular from improvement in health care comprising all measures of prevention, early detection, and treatment of diseases.
To this end a large number of biomedical analyses are carried out, and their reliability must be guaranteed.
For this purpose in most of the EC Member States a system of quality assurance (QA) for these analyses carried out in European clinical laboratories.
The involvement of the Community Bureau of Reference (BCR) program in relation to QA is outlined.
Emphasis is also placed on the role of BCR in fostering collaboration between organizers of QA schemes as well as on the concept of and means of securing traceability of results in this field.
