What is TIQCon ?

  • TIQCon is a Web based peer group comparison tool (inter-laboratory) for Roche customers using Roche controls.
  • TIQCon enables clinical laboratories to evaluate the performance of their assays based on the statistical analysis of QC data generated by Roche analyzers.
  • TIQCon collects QC data from various customers ( all over the world) using the same control lots, instruments and assay applications.
  • TIQCon reports a varity of QC evaluations.
  • Lot reservations providing target value consistency for one calendar year are mandatory to be able to participate in TIQCon

TIQCon   (Total Integrated Quality Control)

Inter Laboratory Quality Control benchmark program 

Laboratory testing of patient samples can be a complex procedure, depending on the clinical analysis, a microbiological study or blood bank testing in all areas of the clinical laboratory. Quality Control (QC) is one of the most important effects on laboratory tests – ensuring both precision and accuracy of patient sample results. The integrity of quality control samples is important for both overall quality management and fulfillment of proficiency testing requirements. Addressing QC issues is critical to identifying potential errors in patient outcomes.

If quality control works effectively, it can find errors in a lab’s analytical processes and help correct them before potentially publishing incorrect patient results. Clinical laboratories use documentation management and the integration of a continuous improvement process to streamline the overall quality control process.

Another way to analyze quality control is peer testing and monthly review of QC trends. Clinical laboratories are often involved in clinical laboratory tests (PT) that validate their QC evaluations. Not the result of a single laboratory, but the comparison with a peer group provides security in the validation of QC results. Periodic review of QC results is a common tool for maintaining quality control of patient samples.

For this procedure TIQCon is the ideal tool!

TIQCon allows clinical laboratories to evaluate the performance of their assays on the basis of a statistical analysis of QC data generated by the control manufacturer for Chemical, molecular and/or clinical immunochemical analysis devices.

TIQCon collects QC data from different customer controls (from different countries) using the same batch of control material, the same type of analyzer and the same analyte.

TIQCon is independent from any control material manufacturer

TIQCon evaluates your quality data according to different standards such as SFBC, Wetgard etc.

TIQCon captures QC data from almost any device via a hardware or software solution, or receives its QC data via standardized transfer formats (XML).

TIQCon Quality Desktop, a very user-friendly interface.

TIQCon works as a desktop application and offers a variety of evaluation options with the simplest application.
