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. The book is replete with suggested forms, models, and systems to meet QA requirements.
