Competent Analysts = Accurate Results

Competency is key in every laboratory. But low budgets and high turnover can make it difficult to maintain consistent performance. Human error and lack of competency leads to high risk. And troubleshooting errors can be difficult for even the most experienced lab analysts.

Developing internal audit checklists can be time-consuming, costly, and hard to keep current. Our TMA Checklists are an optimal add-on to our existing test methods. Utilizing these custom evaluation tools is an excellent way to ensure your laboratory analysts, supervisors, and managers are always performing at the highest level.

Stop worrying about updating your internal audit checklists to keep up with changing test methods. You’ll receive editable documents, making it easy for you to embed your own requirements and policies as needed.
