QC of multiple reagent racks

This information in this question / answer was generously provided by AABB. Any errors are those of the site admin, not AABB.

Mention of specific products or equipment in this AABB publication does not represent an endorsement of such products by the AABB nor does it necessarily indicate a preference for those products over similar competitive products.

Efforts are made to have publications of the AABB consistent in regard to acceptable practices. However, they may not be. As new developments in the field of relationship testing occur, changes may be recommended to the AABB Standards for Blood Banks and Transfusion Services. It is not possible, however, to revise each publication at the time such a change is adopted. Thus, it is essential that the most recent edition of the Standards be consulted as a reference in regard to current acceptable practices.

Each reagent requires QC on day of use. We had multiple reagent racks of our routine antisera at our facility. We rotated the racks for QC so that each rack would be QCd  once or twice per week depending on how many racks were in use.  Each rack was checked daily for lot confirmation and expiration date.  QC for special antisera was performed on the day of use as required. I believe that the question did not offer all of the options that are required to answered correctly, in my opinion.
