Standard Operating Procedures

The purpose of the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) is to ensure the standardization of the quality of laboratory practices throughout a country or region. TB CAP developed guidelines for the preparation and implementation of SOPs for countries with no written SOPs as well as for countries with currently available SOPs. The generic SOPs are user-friendly, written instructions on laboratory procedures, including: test methods, operation of equipment, laboratory organization, quality control, safety practices and record keeping. All laboratories providing TB laboratory services from peripheral to central level can use these SOPs.
