CLSI QMS05 Abstract

Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute guideline QMS05—Qualifying, Selecting, and Evaluating a Referral Laboratory provides laboratories with a defined process to identify candidate referral laboratories and consultants and qualify them for additional consideration. Important criteria that the laboratory should consider when selecting a referral laboratory or consultant are also provided. These criteria are the basis on which agreements for service are prepared and the referral laboratory's or consultant's performance in service delivery can later be evaluated.
