Kvalitetssikring

Ekstern kvalitetssikring for flowcytometri oprettes i samarbejde med DEKS (http://www.deks.dk/); både instrumentet og analysen vil blive evalueret.

Vi har lavet et tilbud, der evaluerer både flowcytometrets instrumentelle ydelse (lyskilder, filtre, detektorer) i forhold til fluorescerende standardpartikler og dets analytiske præstation i forhold til biologisk materiale; bestemmelse af absolutte cellekoncentrationer for leukocytter, CD3+ T celler, CD4+ T celler, CD34+ celler, CD203c+ basofile celler. Listen over de antigenkombinationer, der benyttes, begrænses af brugernes interesse.

Pris for deltagelse i 2007 (juni–december) er 2.980 kr. Derefter bliver det 6.000 kr. om året (per kalenderår).

Opsætningen af den nye kvalitetssikring vil blive drøftet ved DEKS’ brugermøde i Odense den 20. september 2007; vedrørende tilmelding, se nedenstående.
