Overview

At the present time, when public opinion is demanding accountability of laboratories carrying out analyses related to socially sensitive issues, such as drug testing, blood alcohol monitoring, HIV-testing, water and air purity, acid rain, etc., the importance of harmonizing protocols for quality assurance schemes cannot be over-emphasized. The first step in obtaining the status of 'Certified in Accordance with...', is for a laboratory to make a full and detailed internal evaluation, and this invaluable new book will assist you in that step. Quality Assurance for Analytical Laboratories shows how to introduce internal quality assurance schemes that can form the basis for third party assessment, certification and accreditation. It gives real-life examples from a wide range of laboratories, illustrates the statistical tools needed and details the correct terms and their definitions. It also contains a list of all relevant International Standards. For those laboratories wishing to establish a self-audit for checking conformity with the ISO 9000 series, this book is a must.
