All facets in the analysis are included with this quality check. The process control can be performed using Certified Reference Materials (CRM’s). To monitor your method it is advisable to perform a daily process control. In case of any deviation, you can take immediate action to adjust the working method.

When the analysis process is under control the results of the CRM must be between de upper en lower control limits. Biosisto has developed an online control chart, the BiosistoChart, for plotting your results.

Quality in Control

Microbiological laboratories should be able to receive reliable analysis without much overhead. A microbiological analyst must be able to focus on the primary activities, for example analysis of the sample material. Quality control should support the analyst in a logical and simple manner. By using modern information technology, process control and quality assurance are designed smarter and more effective.
