Quality Assurance & Quality Control

Quality Assurance & Quality Control

Quality Assurance Plan is an integrated program to govern all aspects of laboratory operations. Our QA plan assures that the lab procedures meet all state and federal regulatory requirements. It also enables client to verify the quality and validity of the data. It accurately describes the characteristics and concentrations of constituents of the samples submitted to the laboratory. Our quality assurance manual integrates the CHEMTEX operational system for quality assurance, quality assessment and quality control.

Quality Assurance Objectives:

  • To control the quality of all lab activities involved in sample handling, sample analysis, and data reporting.
  • To verify that the quality requirements are met pertaining to analytical methods, clients, contractors or the agencies that certify CHEMTEX.
  • To provide a monitoring system to assure the reliability of reported results.
  • To evolve quality assurance program for each analytical test.
