QA/QC in the Laboratory

This unit discusses how quality control and quality assurance practices apply to virtually every task that a lab technician performs. It describes the major goals and requirements associated with quality control and quality assurance, and explains how quality control and quality assurance concerns apply to routine lab tasks, to sample handling and testing, and to documentation. It also describes audit requirements for maintaining lab quality control and assurance. (Note: Quality Control and Assurance is appropriate for most industrial labs. For labs that fall under federal regulations 21 CFR 210 and 211, which refer to drug products and bulk pharmaceutical chemicals, Current Good Manufacturing Practices may be the preferred unit of instruction.)
