Title: Challenges with Quality Control in Qualitative TestingAbstract
Qualitative examinations are those that measure the presence or absence of a substance. The results are not expressed in numerical terms, but in descriptive or qualitative terms such as “positive,” “negative,” “reactive,” “non-reactive,” “normal,” or “abnormal”. We will consider how Internal Quality Control is applied in this context.
