In the US, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regulates laboratory testing, excluding research, through the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). The CLIA program recently introduced the Individualized Quality Control Plan (IQCP) as a new quality control option for nonwaived testing.
This new approach allows laboratories to tailor a QC plan based on their unique environment and personnel, sample, reagents, and test system. We are pleased to provide you with materials to support your IQCP needs.
For more information, please see the IQCP Support Resources page.
