The role of Quality in the laboratory is a unique beast.
LabHandler.com is my attempt at sharing a few bits of knowledge, tricks of the trade, and other gems that I’ve developed over the years. Perhaps, this might be a springboard for conversations within the laboratory industry to bring about a convergence of day to day laboratory activities and the regulations that drive what we do.
At a minimum this site serves as a repository of my own philosophies on quality and ethics in the laboratory.
