The new version of a cloud-based quality control (QC) management program is faster than its predecessor, has a simplified user interface, and provides an enhanced user experience.

The Randox Laboratories Ltd. Acusera 24•7 Live Online program is an interlaboratory data management and peer group reporting package that complements the Acusera range of true third party quality controls. Being cloud-based, Acusera 24.7 Live Online Version 2.0 avoids the necessity of local installation and frequent back-ups.

Acusera 24.7 Live Online Version 2.0 upgrades and replaces the successful version 1.6, which had introduced several features including the automatic calculation of Sigma Metrics and Measurement Uncertainty. The biggest update to Version 2.0 is the ability to review peer data in real time. Previously, peer group statistics would have been updated every 24 hours, however, with this new update, data will be available for instant review. The ability to generate peer data live in real-time will enhance the laboratory’s troubleshooting capabilities and allow labs to compare their data with others around the world. Other updates to the software include more comprehensive charts and reports, bi-directional connectivity, speed improvements, and a complete make over to the dashboard display.

Acusera 24•7 Live Online is a valuable QC tool for laboratories of all sizes. By participating and implementing this software, the user laboratory will be able to do the following: quickly identify trends, system errors and reagent issues, minimizing expensive repeat tests; automatically calculate Measurement Uncertainty, Total Error and Sigma Metrics; bridge the gap between daily quality control and external quality assessment; improve EQA (external quality assessment) performance by eliminating any undetected bias; facilitate regulatory compliance; reduce false rejections through the use of QC multi-rules; increase confidence in assigned QC target values; and speed up troubleshooting processes, shortening delays in reporting.

Acusera 24.7 was designed primarily for use with the Randox Laboratory Acusera range of true third party controls, however, the software is flexible and can therefore be used with any QC material. Performance limits, QC multi-rules, and peer groups can be customized to suit each individual laboratory depending on user preferences for each different analyte, instrument, or lot of control.

Randox Laboratories, which operates under the accreditation of ISO 13485:2003, has more than 30 years’ experience in research and development of in vitro diagnostic products and processes.
