Quality Assurance - The laboratory QA/QC program is designed to ensure the consistent production of quality analysis and results. This is accomplished by:

1) The use of standard methods and valid analytical methods

2) An established set of procedures for monitoring accuracy of analysis and proper instrument calibration and maintenance

3) The use of written standard operating procedures to train all laboratory personal in QA/QC procedures and to ensure that these procedures are followed.

The level of quality control required is dependent on the type of analysis, but must include at least one blank, a minimum of one standard , a LCS and/or minimum of 10% duplicate samples.
