Qualification tool for cytology staff in accordance with standard NF EN ISO 15189

The QSP software is a tool for high-definition imaging, didactic and very intuitive. It offers to the laboratory staff the examination of blood films, which are scanned and appraised beforehand. 
It allows the laboratory to assess the ability of prospective examiners to correctly identify individual WBC populations and other identifiable elements.

One of the essential steps in accreditation is the assessment of staff skills in accordance with Chapters 5.1.2.d (Assessment of Competencies) and 5.1.3 (Continuous Training) of the NF EN ISO 15189 standard.

To meet this requirement, HORIBA Medical has specifically developed for the cytology benchtop an innovative solution, accessible to all laboratories, to control the slide review.

Thus, the subscription to the QSP allows to receive 6 digitalized slides to be evaluated per month.

The QSP software is a very intuitive teaching tool that offers all laboratory staff the ability to classify blood cells from high-resolution scanned smears.

Each clinical case, previously appraised, is validated by the referent of the laboratory.

The virtual slides offer a minimum of 100 white blood cells to classify and allow the addition of comments on all blood populations and diagnostic analysis based on clinical information.

To ensure perfect traceability, the QSP delivers real-time customized reports and a synthesis of the entire laboratory with analysis of continuous improvement over time.

These reports present complete performance statistics and gap analysis with the misclassified cells, giving to the lab a leading educational tool for continous training.

QSP helps to standardise an area of the laboratory where results may sometimes be subjective. Continous improvements to FBC technology over the years has led to low blood film review rates, however this has resulted in the reduction of experience, staff confidence and subsequently a skills gap in haematology morphology review. QSP helps to overcome these challenges by improving training in blood film morphology and providing a means of assessing staff competencies.  The QSP is available now for both demonstration and lunchtime presentations.
