Quality in the Food Analysis Laboratory explains the procedures that a food analysis lab must consider to meet fit-for-purpose requirements in analytical data to ensure the necessary quality standards. The authors consider the need to introduce quality assurance, different quality models, and legal issues. They discuss specific aspects of laboratory practice and particular areas of accreditation that may cause problems for analytical laboratories.
