  1. Urine Microscopic QC

    We are JC also. It is a moderately complex test which means it should have two level of controls on each day of patient testing.
  2. We are looking to move our kits to our serology department from micro for flu, strep and RSV. When we were CAP accredited (years ago), we were cited under MIC.19840 for not processing the specimens under the biosafety hood. We are currently JC and have been unable to find a similar standard. Do any of you process these specimens in your main labs? My issue is that these are performed in doctor's offices and clinics daily without a hood...why are we any different?
