Biosecurity and Quality in Pre-analysis in the Pathological Anatomy Laboratory

This course will cover the pre-analytical processes of the Pathological Anatomy laboratory but from the point of view of biosafety and safety at chemical risk, process control and quality management of themselves. It is basic in all laboratory processes to have control of the pre-analytical conditions of carving, processing and microtomy, which cease to be dark spots to become the center of attention, as critical steps for quality in the staining technique, subsequent nucleic acid extraction and for unambiguous diagnoses.

We will pay attention to these processes during this course, to work with the highest quality from the extraction of the sample from the human body. Likewise, we dedicate a whole chapter to talking about autopsies, since, carried out with quality, they provide a quantity of data of maximum interest to learn and transfer to diagnoses of subsequent tumor conditions. We have to delve into the different types and accompanying legislation. In all these mentioned processes, health professionals are exposed to two types of risks: chemical and biological risk.

The chemical risk seems quite assumed, but in this course we are going to delve into how we should minimize our exposure to it, which must be our daily exercise at all hours.

The biological risk has been exacerbated with the health alert that we have just come out of without the agent being eradicated.

Therefore, we must assume that our biological samples are potential containers of infectious agents, and we must learn how we must act from now on to be protected against them. 

All teaching staff hope that you like the course, but above all that you can extract all the information that is beneficial to you in order to improve the control, quality and protection against the risks involved in applying pre-analytical processes in the laboratory of Pathological Anatomy.
