"An excellent open learning text ... .Everyone will learn something from this book and I recommend it to anyone involved in analytical chemistry from junior laboratory technician to UKAS assessor." (The Higher Education Academy Physical Sciences Centre, June 2008) "The benefit of this book is the comprehensive and up to date approach to the topic is reliability in analytical measurements." (Accreditation and Quality Assurance: Journal for Quality, Comparability and Reliability in Chemical Measurement, August 2008) "Offers analysts a new learning route to achieving the quality objectives in their work." (International Journal of Environmental and Analytical Chemistry, 2008)
The issue of quality assurance in the analytical chemistry laboratory has become of great importance in recent years. "Quality Assurance in Analytical Chemistry" introduces the reader to the whole concept of quality assurance. It discusses how all aspects of chemical analysis, from sampling and method selection to choice of equipment and the taking and reporting of measurements affect the quality of analytical data. Finally, the implementation and use of quality systems are covered.
