Traceability - the key to accurate laboratory results for patients

The results from laboratory medicine tests influence a high percentage of all clinical decisions. The Joint Committee for Traceability in Laboratory Medicine (JCTLM) is working with many global partners to reduce between-method variability. The production and adoption of reference materials, reference methods and the establishment of reference laboratories are drivers for accurate patient results. JCTLM maintains a database of these higher order materials and methods. JCTLM also provides news and educational resources to increase an understanding of the importance of traceability in laboratory medicine.

The biennial JCTLM workshop will be held in Paris on 2&3 December 2019.
