### How is Levey-Jennings chart calculated?

These rules are defined as follows:

- 12s refers to the control rule that is commonly used with a Levey-Jennings chart when the control limits are set as the mean plus/minus 2s.
- 13s corresponds to a Levey-Jennings chart having control limits set as the mean plus/minus 3s.

**What does a Levey-Jennings chart show?**

A Levey–Jennings chart is a graph that quality control data is plotted on to give a visual indication whether a laboratory test is working well.

Consider these steps to chart an upper control limit in Excel:

- Enter your data.
- Find the average of averages.
- Calculate the standard deviation.
- Add the UCL formula.
- Add the LCL formula.
- Copy the UCL, LCL and average of averages.
- Select your data and choose a chart.

**How do you read a quality control chart?**

The following rules can be used to properly interpret control charts:

- Rule 1 – One point beyond the 3 σ control limit.
- Rule 2 – Eight or more points on one side of the centerline without crossing.
- Rule 3 – Four out of five points in zone B or beyond.
- Rule 4 – Six points or more in a row steadily increasing or decreasing.

**What is LCL and UCL in control chart?**

UCL represents upper control limit on a control chart, and LCL represents lower control limit. A control chart is a line graph that displays a continuous picture of what is happening in production process with respect to time. As such, it is an important tool for statistical process control or quality control.

## What is quality control material?

QC materials act as surrogates for clinical samples and are measured in laboratories on a daily basis in the same manner as patient specimens. QC materials are generally commercially available in liquid or lyophilized form, and are usually packaged in bottles that enable routine and repeated use.

### What is UCL in Excel?

We can use the statistical process control chart in Excel to study how processes or data changes occur over time. The Control chart has four lines including; a straight-line representing average, the data and a lower control limit (LCL) and an upper control limit (UCL).
