Calibration Verification and AMR Verification: Qualitative Assays

How do labs interpret the calibration verification evaluation when it comes to qualitative tests? Many responded that calibration verification and AMR apply only to quantitative assays. This is because qualitative tests typically report results as negative or positive, with a defined cutoff value used to make the determination. However, the cutoff point should be verified periodically (e.g. every 6 months).
