Guide to Six Sigma – Automated reports in IAMQC Peer

12 Jun 2024

Six Sigma aims to minimize defects by measuring deviations and standardizing processes. The Sigma Metric analysis in IAMQC Peer provides a quantitative approach to assess laboratory performance through metrics like Total Allowable Error (TEa), bias, and coefficient of variation (CV). LGC Clinical Diagnostics outlines the implementation of Six Sigma methodologies in laboratory settings using IAMQC® Peer software for automated reporting and analysis. By defining quality requirements and entering TEa values for assays, users can calculate Sigma Metrics automatically and review detailed reports for each assay, aiding in quality control decisions and process optimization. Overall, the document highlights the benefits of Six Sigma in achieving cost savings, improving quality performance, and providing objective assessments of analytical methods and instrumentation.
