Therefore, it is important to understand the specific requirements set forth by the applicable accrediting agencies to meet CLIA regulations in regard to test verification, validation, reporting, quality control/assurance, proficiency testing, etc.

No definitive protocols for statistical analysis of data generated during validation/verification studies have been established; however, several publications provide valuable guidance on this topic, which is beyond the scope of this chapter [7–9, 12–25]. Consultation with a statistician before validation/verification implementation may ensure a more robust plan.
