Featured Show Products


Understanding the Cost of Quality in the Laboratory; A Report (QMS20-R)
Every time work is redone, the cost of lab services—therefore, the cost of quality—increases. This valuable report provides guidance to a lab in understanding and managing the different types of quality costs that affect processes, services, and financial well-being.


Specimen Labels: Content and Location, Fonts, and Label Orientation; Approved Standard (AUTO12-A)
The purpose of this standard is to reduce human errors currently associated with the lack of standardization of labels on clinical laboratory specimens. The standard identifies the required human-readable elements to appear on specimen labels and specifies the exact locations, fonts, and font sizes of these elements.
