We will prepare stabilised whole blood control for haematological analysers and basic haematological parameters including differential white blood cell count. Whole blood control will be evaluated through internal and external quality assessment (control) as for stability and imprecision regarding predefined goals based analytical on biological variation. The model to determine the target values and acceptability limits in haematology external quality assessment scheme will be proposed for basic haematological parameters.
Significance for science
Preparing "home-made" whole blood control for cell blood count and white blood cell differential with adequate stability, comparability of results and allowable matrix effects for using in external quality assessment schemes (EQAS). The results are used in developing the system for determination of targets and acceptability limits in Slovenian National EQAS and international EQAS.
Significance for the country
Direct impact of the research on the development and economy is in savings. Using home made control material for SNEQAS we are not dependent from expensive commercial materials, selective for particular analyser or technology. Important impact of the research is also development in quality assurance of medical laboratories in public health and contribution to education in the field of haemocitometry.
