Stringent compliance with regulatory laboratory standards, application of quality assurance systems in compliance with EN ISO/IEC 17025, validation of diagnostic tests, support of informatics instruments as Laboratory Information Management System are essential elements to guarantee high quality standards and reliability of analytical data in the framework of harmonized activities performed in accredited laboratories. However, eventual incoherence of the analytical diagnostic procedure may occur, for example in case of comparison of data produced from accredited and non-accredited laboratories. Further efforts will contribute to the advancement of harmonization policies sustaining laboratory analytical diagnostics, efficient official controls and certifications, based on standardized laboratory procedures, uniform evaluation criteria and reliable analytical data.
