For Industrial Hygienists and Indoor Air Quality proficient, selecting a good microbiology lab is one of the most imperative business decisions you can create. How do you recognize that the fungal data that you are receiving is precise? Will it stand up in court? Has an educated, experienced, trained analyst really thought about your sample and your plan, understood what you were searching for, and then used their information to reply to the query you were asking? The answers to these questions can mean the disparity between winning lawsuits and leaving you and your clients exposed. This article outlines how to select the Best Lab in Amritsar for you – and how to get the most out of your current microbiology lab.
Most proficient’s want a lab that provides high quality examination, good service, fast turnaround time, and reasonable prices. The first step in choosing a lab is to make a decision which factors are most imperative to you. If your business provides guidance related to human health, then I would disagree that quality and consistency should be the most imperative factors.
What do I mean by “quality”?
Well, for instance, how sure are you that starch granules, which can be ordinary in indoor environments, are not being reported as cast spores? This is only one of the common mistakes I have seen from experienced labs due to poor quality systems or insufficient analyst training, education or practice. A fault like that can lead to inapt recommendations, needless expenditures, or can cause your client to mislay a lawsuit. Asking the following questions will help you recognize the best laboratories:
what proportion of the analysts have Ph.D.’s or Master’s Degrees in mycology, microbiology or a related field? A good lab should probably have close to half of the analysts with superior degrees. Does every analyst have at least a Bachelor’s degree in biology or microbiology?
Has each analyst undergone formalized, documented preparation with a skilled expert?
Lab Services –
How good is the service, involving phone support, web references, online access to your data, or customized reports? For instance, a good microbiology lab should be practical about calling you to talk about unusual results, mislabeled samples, etc. If you ask for same day rush, does the lab constantly deliver on time? How good is their data managing and tracking? Can they tell you who received the sample, who prepared it, who analyzed it, who reported it, and when? Are they able to constantly memorize your preferences? Do you have someone you can call if you have a question, and does that person consistently provide you with helpful answers?
Finally prior to settle on a microbiology lab, you might consider asking the advice of independent experts in the field. Ask civic departments of health, recognized industry experts, or other proficient’s for their opinions. Selecting a good lab can mean the disparity between winning lawsuits and leaving you and your clients exposed, and eventually can save you the difficulty and money.
