Are you making the best use of your effort in the lab?
It all starts with the fundamental principle of a laboratory accreditation, a laboratory will gain accreditation such as ISO 17025. With defined, written procedures for everything they do and having documented evidence that those procedures have been followed. The laboratory will then be audited by an accreditation body to get certified and accredited.
Having obtained the accreditation and certifications, the laboratory would have improved systems, more control over testing protocols, better training & discipline, fewer repeat analysis and greater confidence in result due to the standard operating procedures (SOP) that has been defined, executed and audited.
In these laboratories, most methods used for testing would have to follow their SOP since it has been accredited with the certain accreditation such as ISO 17025 or others.
