Hematology, a branch of medicine concerned with the study of blood, its diseases, and the involved organs and tissues, demands precise and accurate results for optimal patient care. Central to achieving this precision in laboratories are hematology controls.


Why Hematology Controls are needed?

Quality Assurance: Hematology controls are essential to ensuring that hematology analyzers are working correctly. These controls contain known amounts of different blood components, and when tested, they should produce consistent results if the machine is working accurately.

Accuracy and Precision: To ensure that the results produced by hematology analyzers are both accurate (close to the true value) and precise (reproducible), controls are used regularly. Any deviation from expected results can indicate a problem with the instrument or the procedure.

Regulatory Compliance: Clinical laboratories are subjected to stringent standards and regulations. Using controls ensures that these laboratories comply with the guidelines set by regulatory bodies, ensuring patient safety.

Cost Efficiency: Inaccurate results can lead to misdiagnoses and mistreatments, which can be costly. By using hematology controls, laboratories can potentially save on costs related to retesting and reduce the chances of misdiagnoses.


Importance of Hematology Controls

Patient Safety: At the core of medical diagnostics is the well-being of the patient. Hematology controls provide a safeguard against inaccurate results, which can lead to incorrect treatment plans, jeopardizing patient health.

Lab Credibility: Regular use of controls establishes the credibility of a laboratory. When clinicians and patients trust the accuracy of lab results, it fosters a positive reputation for the facility and ensures continued patronage.

Early Detection of Instrument Issues: Regular use of hematology controls can detect issues with analyzers early on, allowing for timely maintenance or calibration, ensuring that the machines function optimally.Consistency Across Shifts: Different technicians might work at different times in a laboratory. Using controls ensures that irrespective of who operates the equipment, the results produced remain consistent and reliable.
