Quality assurance in a forensic biology laboratory.
The quality assurance (QA) program for the New York City Chief Medical Examiner's Department of Forensic Biology is discussed in terms of development and implementation.
Laboratory standards of quality evolve during the process of method development, validation, and training.
These standards are integrated into the laboratory through equipment maintenance, reagent quality control (QC), and proficiency testing procedures.
Finally, longterm QA demands review and amendment to meet changing conditions as the procedures are performed over time.
