Quality control materials: what they can do for you and how to use them

The move from CPA to ISO 15189 has left laboratories with many more challenges to address, particularly around the use of quality control materials.

The National Institute of Biological Standards and Control (NIBSC) are pleased to be hosting a webinar, in partnership with the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), addressing these challenges.
