About this book

Quality Planning for the Life Science Researcher is a hands-on book that addresses quality assurance (QA) in the life science laboratory. This practical book addresses QA requirements common to many government and private funding agencies. It offers real-world examples and illustrates ways of implementing and achieving QA requirements for funding. This book is replete with suggested forms, models, and systems to meet QA requirements. Topics covered include QA plans, quality objectives, sampling procedures, measurement methods, audits and assessments, and preventive maintenance. After reading this book, researchers will understand the principles of QA as they apply to the life sciences and be able to plan a study that will meet most QA programs' requirements.
