Proficiency Surveys and Quality Assurance
The Department of Clinical Laboratories participates in a number of proficiency surveys including those provided by the following organizations:

  1. College of American Pathologists (CAP) Surveys (all divisions of the laboratory)
  2. CAP Links
  3. American Society of Histocompatibility (ASHI) - HLA
  4. UCLA Cell Exchange - HLA

Such surveys periodically furnish unknown samples for analysis, the results of which are compared with those obtained by reference laboratories and other laboratories throughout the country. Corrective action is taken when the results indicate a problem with assays performed in our laboratories. This system of external quality assurance serves to monitor the extensive daily program of internal quality assurance provided by the use of standards, quality control sera, and review of laboratory data by supervisors and directors.
