IVF Quality Control in the Cloud
Periodic laboratory monitoring is essential for timely correction of differences between desired and measured parameters such as temperature.

This presentation highlights the different practises of QC in the lab around the world, describes a recent publication that looked at QC habits globally in the lab and proposes the ”MAD score” for laboratory quality control diligence.
