Commutability and traceability in EQA programs.

Summary of "Commutability and traceability in EQA programs."

The concept of commutability of samples has focused laboratories on the importance of traceability. However, the critical role of External Quality Assurance (EQA) in achieving the primary role of traceability (i.e. facilitating comparable patient results in different laboratories) has largely been lost. The aim of this paper is to review the role of EQA in achieving traceable results.
