A major challenge associated with the implementation of Moving Average QC is getting your laboratory specific optimized settings. Most laboratories have software available that support MA calculations such as analyzer software, middleware or laboratory information systems. To program MA calculations several settings have to be selected that include: assay result inclusion criteria (truncation limits), calculation algorithm (mean, median, EWMA, XbarB) and a variable (mean of 5, 10, 25, 50, etc.).
Until today there was no simple method available for laboratories that supports selection of all of these variables based on the MA systematic error detection properties. To make it even more challenging; optimized MA QC is rather laboratory specific.
MA Generator is the first available tool that allows medical laboratories to get their own laboratory specific MA settings to obtain optimal error detection!
