Boule’s Total Quality Concept plays a vitally important role in CBC. Today, no Swelab Alfa Plus hematology analyzer is complete without it!
Demand for CBC quality control is growing. An ever-increasing number of national and international regulations now require clinical laboratories to conduct QC programs that ensure the quality of their CBC testing. Adding Boule QC materials – Boule Cal and Boule Con Diff – to your Swelab Alfa Plus hematology analyzer will help meet this demand, and increase the value of your reportable CBC results. Both Boule Cal and Boule Con Diff are part of our Total Quality Concept that spans instruments, reagents, QC and service. An unbroken chain of know-how in quality hematology measurements.
TQC comprises instruments, reagents, QC and service.
Boule Cal (a calibrator) and Boule Con Diff (a control) are part of our Total Quality Concept. Boule Cal measures and adjusts systematic error (bias) and helps instruments work more accurately. Boule Con Diff addresses random and systematic errors and indicates if the instrument is stable and precise. In helping fulfill quality requirements, both materials play a vitally important role in hematology system QC.
Boule Cal and Boule Con Diff thus help you generate reportable measurement results by ensuring that your Swelab Alfa Plus analyzer performs over its operating range with expected precision and linearity, and with biases that remain within a pre-selected or control range.
Accurate and precise
Precise but not accurate
Neither accurate nor precise
Boule QC materials help Swelab Alfa Plus analyzers perform with required accuracy and precision, often a requirement for reimbursement today.
Boule QC materials also help overcome many everyday challenges faced by clinical laboratories running CBC. Human error, for example, is one of the most common reasons for QC problems in hematology testing, especially when entering control reference values; expired control dates and incorrect control ranges are not uncommon. But with Boule QC materials, all values are entered via a barcode scanner, so issues like costly, time-consuming re-testing are avoided altogether. Yet another reason to begin a hematology testing QC program with Boule Cal and Boule Con Diff! Enter Boule Cal and Boule Con Diff reference values with a barcode scanner. Safe and simple!
Boule Con Diff – addresses random and systematic errors
Boule Cal – measures and adjusts systematic error (bias)
