Instrument verification involves testing standardized material on a diagnostic instrument to ensure that it is “fit-for-purpose” before clinical specimens can be tested. Verification should be performed on each analytical testing module upon:
- Instrument installation
- Module replacement
- If an instrument is relocated
- Post Cartridge calibration
The verification results are “unblinded” and reporting is managed manually by receiving laboratories or automated through www.tbgxmonitor.com.
The DCS product for verification is available in a 5 spot and 1 spot card format, as shown.
